I'd probably use it (although I haven't done real QA work for a long
time now :-/)

Yes, anything that can improve QA's visibility and the interest of
people for QA is good. Having a public page where QA people
can get credits for their work is good I think.

Yet another mailbot. :)

We may also use the work that Jérôme Marant is doing. He's developing
(at least he said he was interested in doing it) a system where we can
feed by mail a news-like portal (per package) :
- you send a mail to <srcpkg>@activity.debian.org
- it immediately appears on http://activity.debian.org/<srcpkg> along
  with the 30 last mails sent to that address (or something like that)

We could use the qa.debian.org virtual package as a "credit page". :)
