My openSUSE - Community Infrastructure for openSUSE

Feature state

Hackweek IV
Evaluation By Projectmanager


Write a portal which integrates all the different openSUSE services and shows a personal view on what's going on in openSUSE. Services to integrate could be the Build Service, openFATE, Bugzilla, openSUSE News, Planet openSUSE, SUSE Studio, Wikis, the software portal, forums, mailing lists, upstream development sites, etc.

This should be carefully and thoroughfully evaluated and cannot be done in one week. I'm investigating Launchpad and Fedora Community alternatives as both are open-source: https://features.opensuse.org/306926

You will be surprised. Tom is working on it. A lot can be done in a week. This is about putting existing pieces together not about doing something completely different.

Launchpad is a different beast. That certainly needs some more thoughts.

I started working on it, but my goal is to create a page that can collect data from all opensuse resources. With backends for bugzilla, buildservice, studio... the user can configure his own set of widgets on the page to see the data he is interested in.

This is a bit like
Fedora Community but better
;-) I think using launchpad would replace a large part of the opensuse infrastructure whereas I try to create a site the unites all personally important information that is available by different APIs.

I agree with Launchpad point. It is a 200MB+ beast and it is too much tied to .DEB architecture. What I'm doing right now is importing missing python modules to TurboGears2+Moksha stack so I can build FedoraCommunity in our BuildService. I think we can learn a lot from their efforts. Thomas: do you have any code repository for your project? We should try to involve the community from the beginning.

Atm it's a local git repo. I will try to write a blog today or tommorrow and push the sources to a playground directory or similar in the opensuse svn.

You could push to gitorious.org repo like Duncan suggested. I think it is a much better idea than to stick to SVN (and you started to use git anyway...)

icons/user_comment.png T. S. wrote: (8 years ago)

Ok, we have a git repo now here: git://gitorious.org/opensuse/myopensuse.git

What we did so far is a plugin architecture for the different widgets, caching, moving around the widgets, widgets for RSS and Bugzilla.

I will continue on making it completely configureable for each user, and add some more specialized widgets.

Thomas, this is very similar to what I am trying to do with my "openSUSE on Symbian" mobile application - see
Feature #306900 and also my
blog post .

I'll have a look at your code to try and learn something :)

Sounds like we could combine these efforts. Maybe we could share all backend classes, and just let rails create different outputs for mobile/browser use.
