There is the additional issue of the weekly Patch/Bug status report.
Currently, this is created by analyzing the mail from the bugs and
patches lists for opened/reopened and closed items, plus a simple scrape
of the total number of open/closed issues from a SF webpage.

I suppose there is a way to get this information from the Roundup
database, but it seems like a total rewrite of the report would be
needed to do that.
