In the case of Ansteorra, it's 3617 lines of Perl code + comments +
regression test data, 13742 lines of database thorough thru 1993 and
bits before, and 341 lines of LaTeX.  The program can generate
listings: in LaTeX, HTML, or plain text; listing only in-progress
submissions or all; sorted by branch+name or just name.
Unfortunately, there are hard-coded assumptions about how the process
works that makes it hard to adapt to any other kingdom, and I haven't
thought of a good way to generalize it.

OK, OK, I get behind, OK?!  Bad enough when just Francois was nagging
me!  It's now current for 1993-99.  I found the "overdue" problem:
I screwed up one entry and it therefore reported everything
in-progress to be overdue.  I'm working on the "pretty printed" and
HTML versions.  The older version, thru May, is at; I'll put the new version there too, and I
hope on the new Ansteorran server as well.
