I was referring to each podlings "status page", e.g.

The status pages need to list the various resources
(Website, Tracker, etc.) because they are not consistent
across all projects.

Clutch gets some information from
and some more from

Then it gets hints from each project's status page
regarding Website, Tracker, etc. If the hints are wrong
or missing, then it tries to guess.

Then it parses the news section of each status page.

So that is the information that i see as essential.
Then Clutch can automatically determine things like
the current number of committers and link to the relevant
section of Jim's page for the list of podling committers.

We IPMC members can then readily follow the state
of all podlings at a glance, and go to the various
linked resources for more detail.

One more piece of essential information would be
the link to the podling's Jira issue, as you propose
above, to control the set-up process. If that was
defined on each podling's status page then Clutch
could add a column for it.
