Maybe it would be a good idea in the long run to separate the
lintian.debian.org site from a developer accessible copy of
important files from all over the archive. There are certain
things I would want to see changed about the way lintian.debian.org
operates (but note that these are not discussed yet inside the
lintian team due to the sad fact that I was the only real lintian
maintainer in Argentina), and I do not know yet if it reasonable for
us to satisfy both needs (effective use of resources for
lintian.debian.org and developer access to a full lintian lab).
