I don't have any comments on your proposal for now, but if you are
looking for a small challenge to get you started with the Debian Blends
web sentinel, I could propose the following:

Right now, the package names at the beginning of each sentinel entry are
the names of the Debian packages, capitalized.  This looks weird for
quite a few package, e.g. if they are an abbreviation and are really
spelled "ABC", not "Abc".

The upstream metadata (http://wiki.debian.org/UpstreamMetadata) has a
field "Name" which could be used instead of the capitalized package

As Andreas Tille is away, it is unclear whether such a change would be
accepted, but it would be a nice small exercise to familiarize yourself
with the code I think.
