Hey people ! I posted this mail in order to have some input ... it would
be great if some of you gave their opinion about this proposition I posted
a while ago :

> we're so many developers that's it's getting difficult to know us each
> other and even more difficult to know our respective habits concerning the
> way we're doing our Debian job.
> I think that we need a page (possibly a cgi or a page automatically updated

> - information from the LDAP db (name, email, last seen on ...)
> - information about the NMU policy that the maintainer has adopted
>   (timeframe before a NMU is allowed, do i need an authorization to do a
>   nmu ?, ...)
> - the list of packages he's maintaining (yes some maintainer forget
>   that they're maintaining some packages) with up-to-date statistics for
>   each package (number of important/normal/wishlist bugs,
>   standards-version that it does follow, last upload)
> - a link to the personnal bug page
> - any other information that may be suitable for such a page like
