Project Description

Currently to update SUSE manager server user needs to SSH into the machine and manually apply all patches and updates. It also cannot use the repositories sync by SUSE Manager server, and needs to connect to a remote server.

The goal of this project is to allow the usage of SUSE manager synchronized repositories to update itself, and manage the update process.

Should allow the application all updates and all patches to the server.

The language to use will be Go, with gingonic framework.

Personal goal is also to improve knowledge in go language and web framework usage.
