 "offered up for adoption"?

 I really miss the reverse depends info here.  It's useful in some
 cases, e.g.:

  blas (#115397), orphaned 41 days ago
       Description: common lin. alg. routines
       Reverse Depends: lapack-dev petscgraphics1 atlas-test
       petscgraphics1-demo blitz++ lapack r-base-dev blas-dev

 ("lin. alg."? argh!)

 That means that if blas ever enters the "this is going to be removed"
 state, atlas, petscgraphics, lapack, blitz++ and r would be affected.
 Some reverse depends are superfluos (blas-dev in this case for example)
 because they belong to the same source package.

 Since you are generating a nice summary of changes during the last
 week, it'd be worthwhile to include source package names for at least
 RFA's and O's in it.

    4 new packages up for adoption (RFA): dpkg glibc sysvinit xfree86

 this information is useful, but I don't think it belongs in a mail to
 debian-devel-announce.  Informing the person who submitted the bug
 about it is a good idea.  Informing debian-devel or debian-qa is also a
 good idea.

 please inform the submitters, too.

 this is useful information for debian-qa

 Please take into account package's Priority.

 Other than that, since this is obviously doing a much better job than
 my version, would you like to take charge of the weekly report
