This page should really have an age-sorted version as well as
an alphabetically-sorted version; this would help prospective
packagers pick recent software that there was a current demand
for.

Sure, the main goal is to have the ability to spot if WNPP are being
worked on. If the bug has been reported yesterday, and someone updated
it today, we can claim without hurting anyone (in a page that claims to
be updated daily) that it is worked on since yesterday without further
notice. The interesting part is to be able to spot that someone did
update a bug report two weeks ago, even if the bug has initially been
reported five years ago.

;-). “tomorrow” is not part of the usable strings, and people took care
before me to provide a reliable way to count those days, I didn't
reinvent the wheel here.

Indeed better, thanks
