After recently intending to drop the Planet Debian search and recieving complaints that it was/is still useful it looks like there is a good solution.
The code will be made live and official upon the planet debian in the near future.
The DSA team promptly installed the SQLite3 package for me, and I've ported the code to work with it. Once Apache us updated to allow me to execute CGI scripts it'll be moved over, and I'll export the current data to the new database.
In other news I'm going to file an ITP bug against asql as I find myself using it more and more...
