Bug#647901: PTS: inform when a package is involved in a transition

Package: qa.debian.org
Severity: wishlist
User: qa.debian.org@packages.debian.org
Usertags: pts

It would be nice if the PTS informed the maintainers that a package is
currently involved in some ongoing transition (to testing) so that
they can refrain from doing unnecessary uploads.

The release team is exporting a list of affected packages at
this URL:

For each package there's a list of transitions and for each transition,
there's an associated status. For our own needs, we can safely ignore
any transition listed as "permanent", "finished", we only care about
transitions marked as "ongoing" and also those marked as "planned" to
give some advance notice maybe.

We should also include an URL to the associated tracker:

(For example http://release.debian.org/transitions/html/ocaml.html)
