I'm willing to present a Debian project proposal for the Google Summer
of Code  for implementing a web frontend for reporting bugs to the
Debian BTS. I'm volunteering for being a mentor for such a project. I've
expertise in the field of usability and I know, as an user, debbugs
related services like the LDAP gateway; however I'm lacking in-depth
knowledge of debbugs code.
Hence I would feel more confident in proposing the project if someone
with such knowledge join me in co-mentoring the project, in case an
interested student shows up.
Possible people interested in co-mentoring that come to my mind are Sam
Hocevar (who mentioned a web-interface in his DPL platform), Bastian
Venthur (who is developing reportbug-ng), Don Armstrong (who AFAIK is
working actively on debbugs). I've Cc-ed these people.
They, or anyone else interested in co-mentoring the project can contact
me in private mail.
It was me that mentioned about the web submission in platform. I would
like to co-mentor the project and/or any other proposal I've made
there. I also prefer if the student can integrate this feature into
debbugs and not inject the bug report through any other way. To avoid
spam, debbugs can send a mail to the submitter that then need to reply
the confirmation message, so it needs a queue limit, message timeout
and stuff like that. Thoughts?
