There was some discussion earlier in the year about "merging"
merges.ubuntu.com (AKA mergo-o-matic or MoM) and DaD to provide the
enhanced front end to the official site. Unfortunately becausethe MoM code
has never been released this needs actional from Canonical that has not got

Someone could write a script to file these bugs, but that complicate the
worklow of MOTUs who currently don't need to file a bug for a merge at all.

I'd like to see the MoM U/I get a facelift so we can at least get back to
one site to look for merges on.
