Assuming that you are willing to license the SVG files under a
suitable free license, I would be willing to host them under
http://bugs.debian.org/bugscan/countdown/ and generate the SVG files
directly from the bugscan counts, and probably link the current
countdown from www.debian.org/Bugs/. (I don't require the scripts, but
providing them would also be nice.)
The actual day countdowns are slightly less interesting from a BTS
perspective, so I can't really say anything about them, but it
certainly looks interesting.
Build a fire for a man, an he'll be warm for a day. Set a man on
fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
