The Problem: many bugs filed for openSUSE go to the screening-team by default and often remain there for weeks, so that developers (who would be interested in analyzing or fixing these bugs) do not learn about them. However, the screening process is a hard one

The Idea: build tools that facilitates getting bugs to the right people.

1) a tool with a DB of which files belong to which package, which package is built from which srcpkg which in turn can be used with the existing osc maintainer tool or my http://aw.lsmod.de/cgi-bin/public/opensusemaintainer/MozillaFirefox

Data can be sourced from /mounts/dist/full/full-head-x86_64/ARCHIVES.gz

1b) optional: some tool to access ChangeLog entries of packages in Factory or maintenance-updates to better track down regressions

2) an addition to the above that scans the bugzilla text for pathnames or packagenames and finds the best assignees

3) a tool (as part of OBS?) where interested people can register and unregister to be notified about bugs in certain packages or whole devel-projects.

Looking for mad skills in:
