Which seems, according to [1], one of the things the Enrico's monitor is
supposed to permit detecting. An interesting intended usage IMO.

The real point relevant to this mailing list is: are we interested in
hosting the service under some of the QA service we have or not? If not
we can let it go and, AFAIU, it can/will be hosted on ftp-master.d.o. If
we are interested on the other hand we can host it.  Speaking for the
PTS side I don't think it would have any use there, as the PTS is mainly
source package based; moreover, at that granularity the PTS already has
the upload history and the corresponding RSS feed.

IMO it will be very interesting to have this integrated in DDPO, has it
