Using database driven pages
The Debian Vendors page is getting rather large and, well a bit hard
to manage and read. I am thinking a database driven page would make
things easier for everyone.
I'd like to discuss with everyone here wether or not we agree that this
is a good idea and if so how to implement it. I don't think the entire
Debian website should be database driven, but certainly some parts could
benefit from it.
As far as loading is concerned, I just did a quick grep of the
access.log and found 833 accesses to the vendors page between
6am to 5pm, so we can assume, say, 1600 accesses a day for that page
I'm not sure how many hits the mirrors get.
