Just in case you run out of ideas about making Copr even better, I just saw
this feedback on the Fedora Telegram channel comparing Fedora Copr and Arch
Justing W. Flory: Fedora has a similar concept with Copr, but it's not as
widely used as AURs.
lian.rs: Copr is not quite that. Copr is more like Ubuntu PPAs, and lacks
many features such as voting, forum for each package, being able to review
the package before installing, etc,
Adding voting mechanism would be the easiest part, but I would vote against
re-implementing forum, maybe just re-using some trivial flask chat?
Having completely separate forum would be much wiser, because that would
be much, much more complicated database program than whole copr frontend
is. And copr frontend should be as fast as possible; it not only serves
as users' interface.
and most importantly Copr is a repo tool, not a packaging tool. You
know in advance the repo that contains the software you want to install. It's
not as convenient :("
The benefit of AUR is that you have everything within one "repository", even
though that's just repo which provides spec files. What could we do here
actually? There's search box in webUI -- it is IMO mistake that we don't have
this in client tool. So I filed . But what else?
As a former Arch Linux user I kind of agree. Having some voting
and maybe even the forum/discussions would be fantastic!
What do you guys think? I don't have that much time for Copr as I used to,
but, as always, I'm happy to help with UI! ;-)
Thanks for the hint! I'm interested in review of such features.
