May I point you to http://wiki.debian.org/DpkgHomepageFieldTransition ;?

A plan is detailed there, which is the consequence of discussions back
in September.

IIRC (I can't check online right now), it was agreed that a lintian
check would help a lot *before* the MBF, in order to minimize the size
of the MBF.

If you automate some data collection (which is good), I suggest you
link this on that wiki page.
