I'll add that to the features list...

my thinking-out-loud was off: we should try to query 
the information directly from the distro servers 
(planet et al.) rather than from a particular installation.

Also we should look into stuff like this:
http://freshmeat.net/projects/trovesendtwo/?topic_id=66%2C45%2C52%2C1081
it's supposed to help with simultaneously submitting project 
info to freshmeat, savannah, and "similar".
