I don't expect anyone to object :)

Once UDD gathers some information from DEHS it should be possible to
generate tags like qa::new-upstream-version (with a proper/better name of
course) for packages with a new upstream version that has been available
for a while (6 months? less? more?).
An example is curl, from[1]: Last time found up to date: 2008-08-27 04:51:08

@lucas: so, what information Andreas Tille wanted from DEHS in UDD? what do
you think about importing the data directly from pgsql? or do you really
prefer a text file?
