[Mageia-sysadm] http://pkgsubmit.mageia.org/ as simple, parsable text?

in order to create new rpms for perl modules, i'm using cpan2pkg which
makes sure requires are already available in mageia. to do that, it
builds the missing packages and waits for them to be available on the bs
before submitting the new package.

in order to achieve this result, i'm checking pkgsubmit.mageia.org and
parses the html to know the build status of a given package. yes, this
is fragile: it has already been broken more than once, and is broken
once again with the new interface (shiny btw! :-))

so, would it be possible to have a real simple text listing with the
builds and their status:

     perl-LaTeX-Encode-0.60.0-1.mga3:jquelin:36 seconds ago:cauldron:core/release:todo 

or even simpler:


for failures, include the url to the details:


==> would it be possible to have that?

otherwise, i'll get back to my html parsing - sigh. :-|
