It would be useful to have a dynamically generated webpage that shows
how close we are to upstream versions across different Fedora versions
similar to the distrowatch packages page. Maybe allow package
maintainers to add in comments indicating what their plans are, even.
For example, if a update is going to break the ABI in a intrusive way
(let's say XULRunner) or change the configuration file format (nagios),
I as a package maintainer would like to convey that information to my
users so they know why I haven't pushed an update despite new features
or even minor bug fixes.
