Project Description

The idea is to create and internally host a simple webpage with proper backend code allowing quicker and easier lookup for package maintainers and bug owners from OSC. Nothing fancy, just a page with search box and few radio button parameters to execute the lookup and display the results. Obviously it needs to fulfill security measures when it comes to the access to OSC on the service level and also user access rights to the search page itself (e.g. Okta). Currently the lookup can be done via terminal (which is OK), but there are security measures in place which makes the lookup difficult for some and granting an engineering VPN access just for the sake of this OSC lookup is a bit an overkill for people that do not need it for any other purpose.

Goal for this Hackweek

The goal is to prospect the options of the potential service based on the current infrastructure, assess the feasibility and complexity of the solution and potentially design a demo version. Please, give some love to this idea in case you find it useful.


Few details can be found in the User Guide: Open Build Service This is definitely a good start, but we would need to gather more details about how to hook a web service like this to the existing infrastructure.

      If you are "just" looking for the tool (not the experience to create it) there are several already:
