I appreciate your efforts and I like the idea of reportbug integration.
I won't comment about the patch itself, I am not maintaining the
reportbug package, so I can't judge.
However please note, mentors.debian.NET is not an official Debian
project. The ".net" indicates a subtle difference. While some people,
including Don, agreed in eventually having a debian-mentors pseudo
package that would be associated with the debian-mentors mailing list,
not with mentors.debian.net (i.e. Debexpo, the sofware running there).
Hence I don't think any tight mentors.d.n integration of reportbug would
be appropriate for the time being. Also I am not particularly convinced
on the way you do it (content scraping). If you want, I will gratefully
merge a SOAP interface into Debexpo you could query though.
with kind regards,
