Bug#520273: RFA: apt-listbugs -- Lists critical bugs before each apt installation
I'd like to look for someone who can look after apt-listbugs.
Upstream maintenance is required; knowledge of ruby or the Debian BTS
is a plus.

Description: Lists critical bugs before each apt installation
apt-listbugs is a tool which retrieves bug reports from the Debian Bug
Tracking System and lists them. Especially, it is intended to be invoked
before each upgrade/installation by apt in order to check whether the
upgrade/installation is safe.
Many developers and users prefer the unstable version of Debian for its new
features and packages. apt, the usual upgrade tool, can break your system by
installing a buggy package.
apt-listbugs lists critical bug reports from the Debian Bug Tracking System.
Run it before apt to see if an upgrade or installation is known to be unsafe.
