granted, but then i only maintain 5 packages, so i have no problem with it

i would use this only if time is too short and people who maintain a huge 
amount of package, who cannot script like jq or have no super powers want 

if you look at it that way, it seems like there aren't that many people who 
would need this feature.

Personally, i want an app where i can log in, search a package, and grab / 
drop it (last packager could be shown if you have the info anyway...), and a 
link to the bugs of that package, and also a way to show my maintained 
packages. that's it.
