Oke, sounds all very interesting but i would like to know a few details.
Lets assume WebUI is the one that is gonna be developed for a moment
(otherwise fill in the name you want).
1. Will the WebUI be able to contact the koji package database?
2. What is the preferred language to write this in? php? java? python etc?
3. Is is gonna be a part of fedora (hosted on the fedora place) or is
it all just community work that fedora will initialize but than pulls
it hands of?
I'm asking those things because i'm interested in this as well and
letting WebUI work with Koji's package database seems like a perfect
solution to me because all the packages for fedora are in there
already so all you have to do then is make it possible in the koji
database to fetch distribution specific rpm's (so for F7 only, F8
only, Rawhide only or all and i'm sure (i hope) the current database
of koji can already do this (tags)).
And last question. How do you need to make it? Make it with developer
visitors in mind (so making it a bit technical won't do much harm) or
make it so that Everyone can use it, even the completely new linux
user which only knows a few basic computer things?
Also if making it for the last group (which i expect) than it might be
handy to make something of a firefox plugin (or something else) as
well to just click "install" in the WebUI and than the package gets:
Downloaded and Installed. And then i don't mean the normal FF download
window and then double clicking on the rpm file.
Just my thoughts about this.
