It's moving slower than expected, especially as I had the final
examinations of my studies.
The web generation side got some revamp and except some research
if there is a way to jump to line numbers in logs directly and
giving some more helpfull status information should be almost complete.
For the scanning side itself I recently added Simon Ruderich's blhc
(I'd have prefered to have kept it all into one scanner, but I guess
one cannot be perfect in good results, generism and speed at the same
time), so I guess the regexp searching scanner can finally be rewritten
from the current prototype code to something final (the only thing I
wanted to experiment before is to get buildd specific directory names
filtered out of tag data).

The data gathering part and the html generation are now totally
seperated. The first updates a sqlite database file with results
and the later used that files. So the total I/O for having those
two parts on different machines would be transfering a file
compressed around 7 MB (uncompressed around 30 MB) per update
(and some way to know when new results are available).

It would be nice if the data aquisition part would run in some role
account once it is finished. Some qa role account sounds like the
ideal choice. (Though I currently do not have access to that one
as far as I know).

Given how everything is marked preliminary, I do not think there needs
to be much tought into a too smooth transition. Changing the links in
the pts before removing it would be more than enough in my eyes.
