       dl10n-spider -- crawl translator mailing lists (and BTS) for status updates


       dl10n-spider [options] lang+


       This script parses the debian-l10n-<language> mailing list archives. It looks for emails
       which title follow a specific format indicating what the author intend to translate, or
       the current status of his work on this translation.

       Those informations are saved to a dl10n database which can then be used to build a l10n
       coordination page or any other useless statistics.

       get_header extract the email header from the html page. This header starts at
       <!--X-Head-of-Message--> and stops at <!--X-Head-of-Message-End-->. As it contains html
       tags, they are also removed.

       It gets a reference to an array of line (HTML) containing the html code of the page.

       It returns a reference to an array containing the email header lines.

       get_message requests message to the archives of a l10n mailling.

       It gets the language string (LANGUAGE), year (YEAR), month (MONTH) and message number
       (MESSAGE) integers.

       It return a reference to an array containing the html lines or 'undef' if an error

       retrieves all messages numbers and subjects from a page of messages sorted by date. It
       return a hash table with message number as keys and subject as values (this is really
       quicker than retrieving each message).
