Err, I guess there will not be that much of "such queries". Beside of l10ner
and maybe porters, who needs to grep in *all* bug reports? 

In fact, I guess I was asking for the actual location of the database files
of the debbugs to download it and do whatever datamining I want locally. The
solution I was thinking about was to rsync those files from where they are
now to my box. 

Another solution would be to use a slurpd on the ldap server (but I have to
RTFM first). Would it imply an high load on debian servers? I want to avoid
that by all means, even if that prevents me to actually get these stats. 

Thanks, Mt.

I'm sick of being the guy who eats insects and gets the funny syphilis.
