Re: Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Your Packages (But Were Afraid to Ask)

Nice script!

I know this is just a quick-and-dirty, but here are a couple of
suggestions to put a bit of polish on it without too much effort:

If it could drop the link to excuse if there isn't one, that would be
a nice touch (the jump to a nonexistent anchor makes it hard to see
at a glance, and the list is lengthy so you need to wait a while before
you know for sure there is no excuse).

Something like:

$ wget http://ftp-master.debian.org/testing/update_excuses.html.gz
$ gunzip update_excuses.html.gz
$ found=`grep -q 'name="$found"' update_excuses.html`

Then only output the link if found.

In the Sorted developer list, four out of seven columns are devoted to
non-free or contrib.  Thus, the table is dominated by non-main package
listings (and these columns are mostly 0 anyway).  Perhaps consider
these columns instead:

main	non-US	other	total

If you feel you must list separate stats in "other", put them in the same
column, but with a delimiter between, e.g. column header (or 2nd line of
header) is "c,n,cn,nn" and value is "0,0,0,0".
