To generate the HTML page, use the following script on freefall:

   ~gnats/tools/do_generate_annotated_prs <filename>

If you do not specify filename the script will look for a file named annotated_prs.txt in the public_html directory owned by username.

The input format is fairly free-form: any line that starts with a numeric is magically assumed to be a PR number; otherwise it is simply copied to the output. A line starting with %QUERY_PR [parameters] is interpreted a a command to be fed directly to GNATS.

The output is written to filename except with .html substituted for .txt.
