I agree that a service that provides an overview of the status regarding
lintian for the whole archive would be useful (for example, to identify
packages that need some area of work inside a team).
If there's a lack of interest/motivation to redesign lintian.d.o as a
standalone service, maybe a simpler architecture to explore would be to
build it on top of UDD (with lintian runners feeding a table in UDD
directly). That would make it possible to simplify most of the web stuff
(and of course would still allow exporting to other services that need
the data). I would be quite motivated to work on that.
