[Mageia-sysadm] Toys&Tools for Mageia Infrastructure

As we all know more important for a Linux distribution than packaging 
itself is the infrastructure.

I'd like to contribute doing some toy projects, that may be useful for 
the others. Here are some of my ideas (some of them are already working 
as a preview):
1. *Mageia packages maintainership daily statistics* - It's already 
working here http://kamil.mageia.org.pl/MageiaStats/
2. *SVN searcher* - Preview is working here 
http://kamil.mageia.org.pl/svnsearch.cgi - data is a few weeks old, 
twice synced
3. *Missing dependencies daily statistics*  - to-be done
4. *Statistics about our packagers* (like https://cia.vc - but more 
information) - to-be done
5. *Build server statistics* - to-be done
And a few more ideas.

Some of the projects above are more toys than tools, but anyway I find 
them handy (like the maintainership statistics).

So then I have two primary questions:
- How to you find that, is it possible to (say daily, weekly) 
synchronize Mageia SVN (only Cauldron tree?)? What about fetching 
svn:log data? It's a few GB of data and a lot of files, directories
- If the data is open to everyone to read (pkgsubmit, cia.vc, etc), is 
it fine to store it in one private or public place? Is this against 
privacy of our packagers?
