Re: Robot / Wiki-Page for packages under review in SMITH?

Something like http://i18n.debian.net/debian-l10n/english/?

Indeed, the version of the dl10n tools that are available in the
debian-l10n project CVS on Alioth do perfectly handle this by using a
"rev" status with the crawler looking at debian-l10n-english for
status messages. More particularly, the dl10n-txt utility I
personnally use to daily mail myself the status of French po-debconf and
native packages translations does handle Smith reviews, thanks to the
work of Thomas Huriaux.

You can anonymously check it out: this is the debian-l10n project on
Alioth and this is a *CVS* repo (should be moved to SVN but noone
cared to up to now).
