It now detects whether their mailing lists are started.

Ken Coar's mailing list summaries would be good to tap
into, but they are still awaiting a new home.

We need to know which one they use and where it is.

I am considering standardising just that "Bug tracking"
item in the "Project Info" section of each status page.

Not too concerned about the committers lists, as it is
the new committers since acceptance that we more need
to know about. See below.

To keep this easy for everyone, if project's would use a simple
"News" section in their Status page. For example:
then "clutch" can look for "release" and "new committer" entries.

There is now also a Python "pickle" file containing some
basic attributes of each project. See in
the top-level of SVN incubator/public/trunk
