Perhaps you can also talk a bit about the fate of repoview and whether
the new updates system will keep it alive or whether there are
short-term plans on replacing it with the PackageDB?

Meanwhile, the Extras push script runs my modified version to fight
the thousands of superfluous html file updates, and it works nicely
so far:


If, however, there are plans on getting rid of it, it would have been
nice if that had been told last month already when I started asking
about repoview.
