PostgreSQL and Python sound good.

Preferably Python again here...

A good start is probably to look here:

 - the list of all currently running tests:

If you look at the upper (babylo5) tests, you can see what we get currently,
e.g. for i386 this month:

If you scroll a bit up, you'll note that at 2018. a lot of
ipsec tests stopped failing. This is exactly the kind of information we
would want to search within the database.

If you look at individual test lines, you can see the html output,

or you can download the raw or xml data:

Your tool should be able to process one of those formats, so I guess
xml will be the simple way.

Assume that the test data will come from different enviroments, so we will
need a bit of meta data, but that is trivial (and mostly static per test
environment, with rare changes every year or so, e.g. when the qemu version
gets updated).
