Hi Andreas,

no problem for exporting in JSON, YAML (same as JSON without all those quotes
and braces), or even XML or SQL pseudo-dumps.

If there is important documentation to read, please let me know. Otherwise, I
will dig the sources of the UDD.

Writing about sources, everything I wrote for this small project is of course
free software, released under the BOLA licence 1.1: http://blitiri.com.ar/p/bola/

It is in a git repository that I wish to share, but I am too clumsy to make the
cloning work out of the box:

  aqwa『tmp』$ git clone http://upstream-metadata.debian.net/.git
  Initialized empty Git repository in /tmp/upstream-metadata.debian.net/.git/
  warning: remote HEAD refers to nonexistent ref, unable to checkout.

I will move the source to git.debian.org after adding BOLA boilerplates.

Have a nice day,
