Yes.  I had a quick look for the saved project submissions.  I thought
they might be somewhere in Savannah CVS, or else in one of ttn's
websites.  But I couldn't find them.

The tools for dealing with this format are available, though; see

But in any case, if they contain equivalent information, I guess one
protocol (HTML) is as good as another (sexp).

Do you have something in mind for implementing an automatic
build/sanity check, or are you implying that project maintainers
should confirm that their projects still build with 1.6/1.8 before
resubmitting their entries?
