This file is not in CVS, at least not in its latest version, nor run
from QA's crontab. That's what I intended to subtly refer to :).

This is very likely related to version tracking. I don't believe I know
yet of version-tracking safe index files of the BTS, but then, I didn't
look into it either, yet.
Regardless, the /org/qa.debian.org/data/bts2ldap/fullindex is a more
complete index of bugs, and it's also used by most other QA scripts in
favour to the index.db file. The DDPO system extracts very similar data
to the PTS from the bugindex, I think that in order to prevent double
work here, those two scripts can probably best be merged -- also so
that DDPO & PTS don't have different bugcounts for, from the user point
of view, very obscure reasons.
Anyway, this isn't really ontopic for -devel at all, rather -qa...
Let's continue there.
