Long term I think we want to move Debian infrastructure towards some
sort of realtime messaging system like fedmsg, AMPQ etc. So dak would
emit events, UDD and other QA stuff would listen to those events and
update themselves in realtime.

Just that the strings on the PTS are very long when they include the
blend name, I worked around this by just including task names. With
the tasks from tasksel having long names too, I might need to do some
sort of shortening method.
