Please try expo.debian.net -- a replacement for mentors.debian.net
Hi all people on debian-mentors,
Debexpo is a replacement for http://mentors.debian.net/. I hereby request
testers! It is of "beta" quality -- I think it works fully and has enough
features to replace mentors.debian.net.
It has the following improvements over http://mentors.debian.net/ :
* Maintainable code base
* More color on the front page
* Publicly-shown lintian results
I have been spending the past couple of days at Debconf fixing up the code
and the deployment. I'm hereby asking for testing and feedback:
* Please try uploading a package and tell me if it works
(especially tell me if it fails!).
* Please tell me if there are features we need before it can replace
Frankly, I think it's ready as-is! Go to http://expo.debian.net/ to try
My goal with this debexpo work is to get the app and the deployment into a
usable, documented state so it can replace mentors.debian.net. Then I will
shift into the background and do only patch review and documentation
Anyone interested in working on Debexpo, a Python + Pyons web app, should
grab the source code. Some fixes require changing only the templates, and
I promise to review your patches quickly (within four days, tops).
(You can get the latest deployed source from git://expo.debian.net/live .
I will push that to Alioth once I sort out some confusion with my SSH
P.S. There is no known way to change the "Needs a sponsor" field. Just
delete the package if you don't need a sponsor, for now.
P.P.S. Any bugs that can be fixed by just editing the templates, I hope to
see people submitting patches for!
