In other news, Ricky Zhou was kind enough to port the PackageDB
templates to Genshi.  Genshi is perfect for our needs because it has a
plain text templating engine as well as the xml/html engine.  So it's
now pretty easy for someone to write a template to get a plain text
representation out of the packagedb using one of the server methods

Announcement with links to genshi and docs for its plain text templates:

Ticket: for bringing JSON and plain text formats to the user packages list::

Ticket for Michael Schwendt's needs for repoclosure and upgradecheck.
