  - Maybe test the new scripts? but that's not really needed. Only the
    release-news thing results in a nicer layout IMO. Rest: better not to
    avoid issues.

I can give access to new soon to be machine. The
'ftpadmin' script only requires 'ftpadmin' group and you can (somewhat)
easily copy it to your homedir and modify as needed.

E.g. showing the date/time of the last release would be pretty trivial
with 'ftpadmin'. I already have a 'show-info' subcommand which shows the
last release date and the maintainers for each module.

gnome-session	2011-03-09	vuntz, mccann

Note: it currently might be bad to fully rely on 'ftpadmin'. It caches
the releases and doesn't expect the old 'install-module' to install
things without updating the cache.

I guess I should have the old 'install-module' delete the cache file.
