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

Seems they are set, no patch needed.

Yes, you are right.

But it seems that this method does not in all cases work reliable:

     warn about non-existant packages you try to subscribe.  Is there any
     sense to subscribe to not existing packages (am I missing something) or
     should I file a bug report?

     as expected.

Stopping processing here.

debian-med-packaging@lists.alioth.debian.org is subscribed to the following packages:
 bio: altree fastdnaml molphy njplot phylip tree-puzzle treetool treeviewx
 bio-dev: bioperl libncbi6-dev mcl
 cms: zope-cms
 epi: epigrass
 imaging: amidectsim ctn dcmtk dicomnifti imagej medcon minc-tools python-nifti xmedcon
 tools: cycle
 typography: texlive-extra

---> I guess the later is the output of

    Print the list of subscribed packages (automatically shown after
    subscribe/unsubscribe commands).

So at least there is some way to obtain the list of currently subscribed
packages - even if it is not reliable because it shows the same problems
as above.  I would love to have a better interface than email to this
because setting up a procmail rule to catch which queries from ddtp seems
like a suboptimal option if you want to handle this stuff automatically.

Kind regards
