Bug#69271: general: why not a praise tracking system?
Debian has for years maintained an excellent bug tracking system.
What I am missing is a praise tracking system. It would operate
similarly to the b.t.s.; users could:
- send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org to have their recognition
for a debian package registered and forwarded to the maintainer
- visit <http://praise.debian.org/package> to inspect appraisals
submitted for "package".
- use a command-line tool /usr/bin/praise to facilitate the process
of giving praise to debian packages.
- send acknowledgements and append their own success stories to
active appraisals in the a.t.s. to <###@praise.debian.org>
- send mail to email@example.com and change various praise
PS: I was really just reading /usr/bin/bug, trying to figure out
how to submit bugs in helixcode to their b.t.s. Then I found the
pieces of code that handle /usr/share/bug/* customization files
to be included by debian packages. This is really nice work, and
I felt like telling so the bug maintainer. Then I figured that
while there is an excellent infrastructure for bug tracking, there
is no such thing whatsoever for praise tracking.
