GNOME Software supports distribution upgrade, that only requires a few clicks for upgrading your system. But it's not integrated into Leap. So this is that I plan to do this Hack Week.

Involved components

Future Improvements

  • Fetch distributions.json using libsoup instead of librest to avoid adding new dependency to gnome-software.
  • Add rpm conflicts resolving ability in PackageKit's zypp backend and GNOME Software.

Hackweek 21

Tasks

  • Pick up changes made in hackweek 19 and build an usable solution.
  • Submit patches to upstream and openSUSE:Factory.

Achievements

  • upgrade-system method was implemented in PackageKit's zypp backend and submitted to upstream and GNOME:Factory.
  • Rewrite previously rewritten openSUSE-distro-upgrade plugin to suite the re-structured GNOME Software plugin framwork.
