the new update_excuses hides the information for successful autopkg tests which
makes the page more compact.  I dislike that when searching for failed autopkg
tests which failed for some triggers, but succeeded with others.  With the old
output you were able to just grep update_excuses to look for those tests, which
currently doesn't work anymore.  Please restore the old behavior, or if that's
considered to be too big, then show successful autopkg tests when there are also
ones which are failing with certain triggers.
