Yeah. Currently my code uses a partial mirror of snapshot.debian.org,
and I ran a custom lintian myself on 339491 source packages.

Ideally all the needed additional tags will be added to lintian, and
doing a more detailed and "real-time" analysis will be possible just by
looking at the lintian results on https://lintian.debian.org. (Once it's
available on lintian.d.o, it's easy to generate the DD list using UDD,
for example).
