hi folks, just a quick update, the PoC that i was doing was quickly getting complicated enough that i've abandoned it in favor of an initial implementation code that will hopefully be useful in the final version as well. thus it has introduced some more delay, as i was evaluating a few different tools/bindings/etc. what i'm working with now: - partial source archive mirror with some sample packages, via reprepro - python script for generating static content - python-cheetah for template output generation - python-debian for parsing various archive/control files - python-pygments for diff markup what i have so far: - front page with quick shortcut links to a-z(and liba-libz) summary pages - summary pages for a-z (and liba-libz) listings of packages with available versions listed - per-package-per-version page with listing of diffs for series format packages i'll be putting some extra polish on this in the next day or so, including adding a few more page templates such as per-package summaries comparing versions between releases and also adding support for at least non-debian-dir diff.gz information and v3 (quilt) format packages. after that i'll rsync what i have generated to somewhere under my p.d.o page, and throw the code into a git repo for perusal/patching/etc. this will likely take place towards the end of the weekend. one open question i have now is with regards to the eventual hosting of the system: does it seem reasonable that the final version could either coexist on an existing archive, or alternatively have enough space for the .dsc and .diff.gz files from the source packages being tracked to be stored alongside it? sean
