Good!, thanks for the news and for maintaining the service.

Out of curiosity, and given http://debdelta.debian.net has been around
for a long while now and is used (according to my exchanges with you)
regularly, do you have a plan for integration into debian.*org* proper?

In principle, it looks like a very useful service to users than they
should be able to enable triggering a switch into APT. Is there any
document describing that possibility, its drawbacks, showstoppers and,
more generally, the way forward?

Is the ongoing GSOC project [1] the only remaining block or… ?
(Yes, I'm also aware of [2], but it seems independent form actually
making easier for users to find and use the service.)
