A static webpage that is regenerated every now and then should be easy enough, 
that I might create it. On my blog the project leader of 
http://oswatershed.org/ mentioned his project, which is something similiar for 
different distributions, but it currently does not show any packages for 
Fedora.

The bug report could be linked on the page and then the maintainer can use it 
for this. This should also then be easily doable.
