Get access to accepted/autobuild, like the buildds and wanna-build
have. Combining that with the main archives packages file you get an
hourly update of what will go ino debian or already is.
As advantage of that i see:
1. for each package on your list you run grep-dctrl over the packages
file, trivial to script and to parse.
2. if something goes wrong and a package is missed the next scan will
show it. A lost or missparsed changes mail would need manual
