Following up the previous discusison (and ignoring all the negative
comments :P ) I played with mako and create an html report [1] from
the script above. It's really rough, I know, but at least present the
result in an easier way to be "published".

I like gregoa's idea of email, but it might come to a situation where
I keep sending email to a list/group of people has no interest in
adopting the packages I propose to them, and in this case, 1 email is
just enough and more will become really boring.

As usually suggestions are welcome :) (and source code is on ~morph
too) for example adding a link to DDPO for the packages.
