Actually, I've started using

 lynx -width=160 -dump http://bugs.debian.org/release-critical/other/all.html \
 | grep -v '\[[EUS]*X*\]\|I\]\|\[TX\]' | grep -B3 '\[........\]'

as a means of tracking the status of sarge-affecting RC bugs according to

The diff between this and bts.turmzimmer.net includes two bugs against
packages that are only in non-US; two bugs against installation-reports
which most likely need to be downgraded; one upgrade-reports bug which is
probably unreproducible; one bug on 'kernel' that is probably sarge-ignore
but I haven't looked at it in any detail yet; one unreproducible bug against
"general" which is probably a fixed bug in an old package; and one RC bug
against ftp.debian.org asking for d-i udeb packages to be synced for the
release (95% resolved as far as the release is concerned, current overall
status seen at <http://www.wolffelaar.nl/~jeroen/d-i/sarge-sarge.txt>).
