I have experience developing Django applications, and would like to
try my hand at this.

Thank you for describing the feature well, Paul.

I'm a complete newcomer to the ‘distro-tracker’ code base though.
Scrutiny of whatever I produce will be much appreciated!

My understanding, from a brief browse through the source code, is that
yes that's what a lot of content in ‘distro-tracker’ is: scheduled
jobs populate the database by querying other services.

The patch information would IIUC gather all its data from the remote
services Paul enumerated.

I agree with Paul that we don't need to wait for that; a first
implementation can be Debian-specific, and we'll see how well it
serves when used in anger.
