I'm not sure I'd be onboard with that idea. My understanding is that the 
Parabola folk will blacklist a package as soon as an allegation is made, as 
part of a "blacklist first, research second" type of policy. I don't mean 
to criticize the Parabola folk for this though because such a policy 
probably does not conflict with the FSDG but I think a list of common 
freedom problems that we're asking other distros to take action on should 
only consist of ones that have been researched and confirmed to be valid, 
which is how that list has historically been maintained. So an automated 
rote importing would probably not be a good idea, IMHO.
