Re: How to implement QA web pages for a certain set of packages

This directs the mail to the DDPO mail bot:

To: ddpo@qa.debian.org

This sets the user to the Debian Med packaging team:

user debian-med-packaging@lists.alioth.debian.org

This subscribes the current user to the texlive-extra source package,
adding it to the typography section:

subscribe texlive-extra typography

This subscribes the current user to the cycle source package, adding
it to the tools section:

subscribe cycle tools

As a result of this mail, you can see two extra sections (typography
and tools) on your DDPO page:


I think I've got it.  Perhaps this might be a quick solution for the
moment if we link to


(hope that these anchors links will be set - if not its probably easy
to create a patch.)

So I will write a script that genereates this kind of subscribe
mails.  Do you think that it is misuse if I generate such a mail
once a day for all packages even for those which are just subscribed
or whould you prefer verifying whether a package is just subscribed.
If the later is the case is there any easy way to obtain the
just subscribed packages (or do I have to log them in my script
which leaves out some possibly manually setted subscribtions)?

Thanks for your patient explanation
