Bug#859123: automate import of DLAs and DSAs in www.debian.org

Package: www.debian.org
Severity: normal

According to carnil in a discussion on the debian-lts@ mailing list,
DLAs and DSAs are manually imported in the website:


The process looks something like:

cd webwml/english/security
./parse-dla.pl $message
cvs add $year/dla-$nr.{wml,data}
cvs commit -m '[DLA $nr] $source security update'

where $message is the text of the DLA.

A similar script exists for DSAs, which is in parse-advisory.pl.

My question is: should this process be automated further? Is there a
way we could/should do this within the security team(s) directly?

I ask this because I wonder if we would have had the same problem with
the missing DLAs (in #859122) if the process would be automated.
