What my clone concerns I'd think it is not a burning issue.  The visible
effect is that on pages like this


all packages are featuring the "Go tagging" request.  I do not think
that it is worth spending extra time into a temporary workaround because
{blends,debian-med}.debian.net is an *inofficial* service and the
official pages on alioth are not updated anyway currently (because of
other UDD issues).  So please stay relaxed.

I was just wondering about possible future problems with DebTags exports
which might have less influence if the old data might be conserved in
UDD instead of deleting them if there is a broken import file.  If
nobody insists I might implement this into the importer.  To test this a
working http://svn.debian.org/viewsvn/*checkout*/debtags/tagdb/tags
(backup of old data whatever) at any downloadable place would be

Kind regards
