This is not something I or you or anyone else could push forward right
now here. This is something which needs consensus among Debian
Developers and a DPL accepting that. And, finally some DDs who would
need to be delegated there.

Feel free to open a thread on debian-devel and/or get our beloved DPL's
opinion on that matter. Eventually you should find two developers first
which would agree with you pushing things forward here.

We are all contributors. Those who need the mentors.debian.net and those
who don't. There is still room for improvements left.

In fact, I noticed there is already a SOAP interface. Apparently nobody
used it since 2+ years though, so it may be working or not, but it seems
ok, generally speaking:

>>> import SOAPpy
>>> server = SOAPpy.SOAPProxy("http://mentors.debian.net/soap.wsdl";)
>>> server.config.dumpSOAPIn = 1
>>> server.package(name='lighttpd',version='1.4.29-1')
