I have no idea if that can be done. :)

The raw popcon data is available for all Debian Developers at
popcon.debian.org.  Unable to log in to confirm the exact location at
the moment, but it is there somewhere. :)

Putting popcon-developers@lists.alioth.debian.org on the CC list, as
it is a better place to discuss the use of popcon data.

Happy hacking,
