I'm aware that some of my packages could use a stablereq, but since I
don't run any stable machines at the moment it just never bothers me.

Sounds like something that can be done, is not too complex ...

Maybe we should agree on some standards for such webapps so that they
are easy to support
- what languages / toolkits / frameworks does infra support / tolerate ?
- what data exchange formats can we define? There's things like
packages.g.o that already do parts of it, there's euscan and other
tools. Can we maybe unify that a bit?
- how do we coordinate people that want to help out?

For now I'll not be the one trying to carry such things forward, there's
enough other distractions for me at the moment. But I see what can be
done and think "that'd be, like, awesome" :)
