Sure. I had the idea also quite some while ago:
http://sapporo.linux-kernel.at/rpmsearch/index.pl

It's not regular updated or so and it's running on a slow machine. Also
the links are currently dead links. It was just a quick hack of an idea

If I can help with my source/experience (backend is python, frontend is
perl), I will...

Best,
