Hi Paul,

me again. ;-)

Codehaus already has a horribly slow main page... Never really heard
of them before, though. (I'm always thinking of Spamhaus when reading
its name. :-)

For those hosted on Gitorious, you can import them quite easily to
Gitlab.com. Import is though still a little buggy, but should be fixed
once the fix is deployed to Gitlab.com:

Sounds like a nice idea and will probably replace many homebrewed
scripts and check lists. Looking forward to it.

I'm missing license-reconcile here which checks licensecheck's output
against debian/copyright (and seems to can do some more stuff).

Maybe "isutf8" from the package moreutils could also provide some
useful checks. I've though just filed a bug against lintian (#780180)
to do some more UTF-8 checks, so this may be superfluous soonish.
