I thought "pkgdb" would become a main interface for anyone who wants
to lookup package information without need to interact with Pagure or
PDC directly, meanwhile we can keep using current terms about packages
e.g. main contacts, that would be easier for anyone to get involved
and start to contribute.
I support this. For me is the pkgdb entry point. If I want to know
something about package, I'm going to take a look into pkgdb. I'll be
missing its simple UI.
Will current pkgdb API be still available, or need to query from
Pagure or PDC individually?
Actually, I don't insist on not drop pkgdb. Whatever it'll be dropped
or not and whatever the form it will be, as long as it could make
things easier for packagers and potential contributors. :)
