Needed is anonymous access to pkg src.rpm %name, primary maintainer,
co-maintainers, Cclist.

Retrieving a single flat file/db (e.g. in pickle format) has the advantage
that it is a single point of failure only. If the operation fails, scripts
can terminate early. On the contrary, if for each in a set of packages the
database must be queried separately, this needs a lot more error condition
handling to consider temporary unavailability of the service or network.
That creates overhead for small helper scripts.
