I really miss the reverse depends info here. It's useful in some
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.

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

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
