Let dak commit all source packages to Git
Hi Michael, Zack, et al,
thank you Michael for codesearch. Since somebody asked about code browsing and
Zack is interested in some source.debian.org I wanted to mention my dream:
For every debian source package that enters the archive, dak should commit the
source code to a public readable Git repository and put a signed tag on it.
- One can just put a git repo browser in front of all git repos and have
browsable source code of Debian.
- One can just issue
git clone --branch=$VERSION git://git.XYZ.debian.org/$SOURCEPACKAGE
and get the versioned source code of any Debian package even of those whose
maintainers do not yet understand the beauty and superiority of Git. :-)
Would something like that help your project? I imagine that such an
infrastructure could be a base for many nice project that we do not imagine
