Sure this is interesting information.  I have no idea how to handle this information
for the moment but it is defintely interesting metainformation for a package.  I do not
know a reasonable way to express it on the tasks pages, but it seems to be pretty clear
that these "Enhanced-By" packages should pop up on the bugs pages in case something
happens there.

This is a perfectly valid critics.  I added (hopefully) enough information to the
script that will make it clear enough that it's use on your local machine is very
limited if you are not running an UDD instance.

Every member of the Blends Alioth project can run it on alioth.  If you are member
of the blends team you can go to


and (re)create the tasks pages.  I should write some better doc but in short here
is some advise:

   alioth$ cd /srv/alioth.debian.org/chroot/home/groups/blends
   alioth$ ./tasks.py <your-blend>

creates the tasks page.  Which blends are avialable can be seen by

   alioth$ ls webconf/*.conf

It is allways interesting to have a look into the directory


where you can find information about packages which are just included in Debian
errors (:-(), and so on.

I'd consider this, yes.  I think a good way is to increase the general Blends doc
a bit about this and just link to the actual paragraph.

You know the usual answer to this kind of questions, right. ;-)
Thanks for your interesting comments
