www.opensuse.org is the single most accessed page in the SUSE/openSUSE universe. With 1.5 million visits per month it generates 2.5 million page views and has around 500 people on the page at any given time. Yet it's one of the oldest, crufty pages we have!
It doesn't concentrate on what it should do: Tell people about the distro so they download it. It's design is 5 years old, it's not mobile, it's not accessible. There is absolutely no interactive, engaging content at all and the technology used goes as far as a shell script/cron to update dynamic content.
Which package currently provides libfoo.so.6 ?
A question for/from packagers and currently not easy to answer, even if the Build Service might know about the content of packages inside a repository as he created the nice filelist.gz files inside the repomd directories with all the needed information already.

Customers may face problems with their systems we weren't aware of, if we focus on testing single components.
We simply can't copy each and every customer setup, but we want to have test results that are more relevant.
This idea has been partially implemented for JeOS images, where we are collecting some data from the images whenever a new build ends up in openQA. For instance, https://openqa.opensuse.org/tests/2419705#step/image_info/9 is collecting the size of the image, as well as total number of RPMs, the list of RPMs with their size and some filesystem information.
