Yes, I agree. I also think this would be rather simple to code up:
lintian.tags is yaml so one can easily parse in python by using pyyaml's
yaml.load function. Because it is simple, I think it's a good fit for
the gift scheme. Hence the usertag.

When fixing this, it would be nice to provide views within UDD for
packages with both fatal and nonfatal tags.

Feel free to contact me with any questions if you start to work on this.

You'll want to modify

  - sql/setup.sql to add a new table
  - config-org.yaml to teach UDD about the new gatherer and to download
    the latest list (see the lintian section)
  - udd/lintian_autoreject.py (or some other good name) - a new file to
    parse the downloaded file
