Mass bugs filing: bogus debian/watch files

Hash: SHA1

Hi everybody,

I've written a set of scripts which read the no_upstream.html page of
DEHS[1] hoping to notify the maintainers of the packages listed there about
the debian/watch file not reporting upstream's version.

The scripts also perform some checks on the message reported by uscan, to
detect whether it is a real problem on the debian/watch file or just a
temporary problem.

The scripts are designed so they don't send different bug reports to the
same package until the first bug is closed (I've to manually remove the
packages from the generated database).
They are also able to skip packages in case the maintainer doesn't want to
be notified.

At the moment I've let my scripts send only one bug report[2] to demonstrate
how the generated messages look like.

At the time of writing my scripts report to have found 827 packages listed
in no_upstream.html.
And after skipping entries for packages in experimental and removing entries
that are considered to be temporary failures they would be sending around
785 bug reports.

Is there any objection for not letting my scripts fill bug reports?
Comments? Suggestions? or any other kind of feedback? :)
