Show dependencies between packages in repo

Feature state

Buildservice
Done

Description

  • Show dependencies (Requires, BuildRequires) between packages in repository
OBS should provide lists of required packages (runtime and build dependencies)
- BuildRequires could be extracted from spec files
- it is important to show also reverse dependencies (eg. which packages depend on the package I'm maintaining)
- Requires are much harder (will probably need also symbol resolution), but not so desperately needed as BuildRequires

Hmm, sounds good to me. But I'd like some Project Manager feedback as well especially in the direction how usefull/needed it is and how much effort it would take to implement. For now I'm pretty neutral to this feature.

Without this feature it's hard to decide if any package can be dropped from Factory. Pdb tracked at least BuildRequires.

Those data should be easily gathered from final source rpm/rpm, because parsing of a spec file is not very easy task.

There is osc whatdependson and dependson, so it can be closed.
