This list is generated by a script running nightly with upstream watch. 
These tools are curently separeted, but merged version is almost done. 
This is part of what i started to commit over the last days (the 
database model and perl scripts we have been talking by email).

These statistics are only bare numbers. They will be more accurate in a 
few days (i hope before Oslo ;) ). The problem is the following... This 
page display the number of packages, and the number of packages 
available from GAR. But i do not (yet) check that the package in the 
catalog is the one from GAR...

It is also missing informations about upstream and GAR version (which 
can be different from the package version). This is where i will plug 
upstream watch on this page. I also have a script from Dago to plug on 

Most of this is done in the devel version. I have started to clean my 
code and to commit it to SF as it goes through testing and "cleaning" 
(adding license stuff, comments, and such).

I should have done most of the back at the beginning of the next week, 
and will start to release my GUI and plug it into wordpress web site
