I noticed that you were referring to http://patches.ubuntu.com/ on your
webpage [1]. It's clear (to me) that its "interface" wasn't made to be
used by humans, but rather to be used as a database. Some time ago, I
wrote an interface for it. It's available at [2] and is called "UbuntuDiff".

	[1] http://dex.alioth.debian.org/ubuntu/
	[2] http://ubuntudiff.debian.net/

UbuntuDiff uses grep-dctrl like queries (or plain text queries) to find
the set of packages you're interested in. Then, it displays all relavant
informations for each package that matches the criteria. The patches
provided on [1] are split by file, so that you can see (by clicking on
each file name) a specific part of the whole debdiff. (You can also
download only the parts of the debdiff you're interested in).

To ease its use, ubuntudiff has quick links:
- http://ubuntudiff.debian.net/q/$filter/$query which expands to
"-F$filter $query" in the search box,
- and, http://ubuntudiff.debian.net/x/$filter/$query which expands to
"-X -F$filter $query" in the search box.

The data is updated daily (like on [1], iirc).

I hope you'll find it useful for your needs. If it misses some features
that would make your work more pleasurable, I'd be happy to try to
implement them.

Kind regards,
