Yeah -- if we have the package's app display a link (maybe from

would not be needed.
Yeah, that could be the case down the road... but pointing to gitweb
now might be fine.

There was a reason we didn't use git.fp.o... maybe mmcgrath would
remember better than me.
I think it was pointed at fedorahosted for a while for some reason, so
it was causing a lot of confusion after fedora switched to git for
fedpkg.fp.o would be slightly confusing since we have a fedpkg
package and becomes moreso if we move fedorahosted projects to
Agreed. I don't like that one.
If we do move the gitweb domain we'd be breaking the URLs into
which I know we wanted to avoid in the past... May be an opportunity
to move to cgit (I think that was the name) instead of gitweb,
though. That might solve our performance issues.
We could look at it, but I thought it had it's own issues.
Do we need to preserve links into gitweb? I would think if we provided
a ok 404 type response most people would just go look at the top level
and find what they are looking for.
But perhaps I am not understanding how often people provide gitweb
I'd love to hear more proposed names. So far, using the new app
the entry point to gitweb and then using packages.apps.fp.o sounds
like the best plan but it also seems somewhat hacky.
We should talk about what other things we want to move from pkgdb
the new community. As we talk about a projectwide shift in urls to
, packages.apps.fp.o, and
pkgdb.apps.fp.o are also confusingly similar. We could aim to move
all of the pkgdb functionality into the new packages/community app.
Or we could make the new community app the front end to it similar to
how we're talking about for gitweb. Or we might want to rename in
some other way.
Yeah, perhaps we could generate a list of all types of urls that pkgdb
