No information is generated from developer.php. But I agree with you 
about the large generated file (by backends). 
I need to rewrite the backends in order to have a relational schema 
located in several data files. But the lack of time, and probably the 
lack of outer investment implies that this rework has not already been 
done.

That's what I wanted to do. Parse the new.html file in order to provided 
excuse/popcon like data files that could be included with php.
The popcon and the wnpp backend processes are standalone scripts that 
could be easily used out of the box.

To recall the main goal of developer.php is to provide a unique place 
where all the spreaded debian developer related infomation will be 
nicely displayed. IMHO this kind of information (new queue process 
per-developer) might be useful for all developers.
