I'm not sure I understand the precise terms of the bug report, in
particular what does Paul mean with "complaints" (as opposed to "errors"
and "warnings"). Do you mean to include also "info" messages with
complaints or what?

Currently the PTS is aware only of errors and warnings, which are
delivered to it via http://lintian.debian.org/qa-list.txt .

Russ (assuming that "info" messages are the only missing ingredient to
implement this given request): would it be problematic to add an extra
column to that output from lintian.d.o?
