The idea was not to have a html list, but to associate the valid
problems with bug reports.
Checking and deciding which problems are valid probably require a
manual intervention anyway.
I would think that the same applies to searching for existing bug
reports and reporting a new one.

Today I searched for all reported dependency problems in the bug
tracker to find out which ones were already reported and which ones
were new, and I reported the new ones.
Normally next week, I will just have to compare the reported dep
problems with my list, to isolate the new problems faster and with
less work.

I would rather not have to deal with the bug tracker at all, and have
every maintainers just look at the results and fix their problematic
packages, but it does not seem to work that way.

That's on my list - generating a web page from integrity check output
and sticking it somewhere.

Anyone interested in doing that? Eh? Eh?

Not to be cynical, but I think Xavier is right- what good would that
actually do? Hell, mailman already does this for us:

If the only con is "it's work that I don't want to do", it sounds good to me.
