I was used to convert mail DSA for the website in the last weeks (mainly
because the security team stopped converting the DSA themselves..)

And because of a mail misconfiguration on the provider on one of my
email adresses, I lost part of the last week emails.

That is a good opportunity to show that the security team should commit
the web version themselves, so that the information is up to date

The script is on the webwml cvs : english/security/parse-advisory.pl
It needs some fixes, but I think the input coming from the mail should
have a more reliable format.
