[Mageia-dev] maintainers database

it looks like we will need a database to know who maintains what, basically.
It used to be http://maintainers.mandriva.com/ - its source code has
no explicit license, so we've got to build this again.
I drafted a very quick page for this here:
http://mageia.org/wiki/doku.php?id=web:maintdb with basic entites and
Now, it would good to know what packagers (and others) need for this.
* instead of having a single maintainer for a given package, have
several maintainers (with an admin maybe) over a given package (easy);
* should there be groups of packages defined? (this adds/replicates
some logic that may already be somewhere else)
* should there be explicity groups of maintainers? or implicit (as
made of people maintaining the same package)?
* should there be (customizable) alerts/warnings for people, when a
new package is added, or removed, or that has no more maintainer?
Thing is, this should be a really small, basic, simple component app.
So it plays easily with other components. I don't know how this could
be implemented/used or replaced by mageia-app-db however.
Thanks for your insights.
