I mean an automatically generated current list. :)

But these are excellent posts describing the kinds of procedures that
are advisable.  So what I think we need to make this even better is
the following:

Automatically generated web pages listing the packages that are ITP or
ITA, sorted by the length of time the ITP or ITA has been set.  Each
page would be like the current page of orphaned packages with a non-QA
address, indicating the suggested timelines to follow and giving a
suggested procedure.

This would enable the work to happen whenever someone gets the chance
or the inkling, instead of depending on a person deciding to take the
whole thing on all at once.  

I am happy to write suggested text, but it would take the people who
manage qa.debian.org to actually put the web pages in place and such.
