  I hope a little duplication of effort isn't a problem, because I just
 started to create some webpages myself:


  Those pages contain a list of packages which will be auditted, and
 some of the results so far.  (Some results have been kept private).

  It was my intention to move the static pages to some kind of database
 driven site, but I didn't have the time yesterday.

  Would you share the URL or the project name for your project?
