I think having a list in ~ubuntu-desktop bzr for packages actively updated by
one (or more) person would be fine. Then Cesare's script checks it, and for
those packages having one maintainer, it lists it in the page, perhaps not
displaying the comment field.

Do you mean the WeeklyTODO wiki? I've used it in the team for some time and
don't like it very much. I think a page like this, which is automatically
updated and where you just have to put your name in one box to claim the update
is much better.
