Towards a cleverer apps-brancher: I need help

Hello everybody,

the apps-brancher is doing alright, if the submissions contains an
up-to-date tarball. Andrew Mitchell was quite right when he requested as a lot of
submissions have comments including links to PPAs or branches on LP.

It'd be very nice if you'd help me test the regexes in
together with me on a few pages, so we can test if all the possible
branches/PPAs are found and we can use them instead of the submitted
(possibly outdated) tarball.

Testing this is quite easy, ie:

In [1]: from brancher import web; import urllib

In [2]:

In [3]: web.find_ppa_info(html)

In [4]: web.find_branch_info(html)

In [5]:

If some of you could test this on a few pages and report missed
information in the bug report, I'd appreciate it.

Have a great day,
