Excuse me for not writting in this list for long time.
I still have a great interest in Fedora and GSoC projects in particular.
At one of my first letters Thorsten Leemhuis replied:
"No idea - as I said, I just added the idea to the wiki. I have no ideas
nor skills how to actually realize the WebUI, thus I don't think I can
mentor this idea further and * * I don't have the time or interest for it.
"I'd suggest you contact J5, the developer of MyFedora. Maybe he can help
to answer the question if a separate WebUI makes sense (which I doubt). "
As I understood there is no sence to create another project that
performs the same tasks and functions as MyFedora.
Same goes for me, but looking Mockups, It looks a lot like PackageDB,
but with an improved UI .. so, in my mind, rather than making MyFedora
take PackageDB's ( http://admin.fedoraproject.org/pkgdb
) work, why dont extend PackageDB?
.. PackageDB code is already out there .. revamp the UI, add more
features .. I used the name "PackageWebUI" was because thats the title
in the Fedora GSOC Idea page .. but I would prefer an approach of
improving pkgdb rather than writing a new one..
/ MyFedora - the name sounds more like a Fedora
AIO to me, and thats also what i understand from
"my.fedoraproject.org is a project to integrate all of the Fedora
infrastructure in one place. The goal is to create a modular web page
in which each module would pull views from the various Fedora
resources and display them to the user.",
and one of those modules, could be an integration to
PkgDB/PackageWebUI .. Unix philosophy: "Write programs that do one
thing and do it well." .. PkgDB focuses on packages, MyFedora focuses
on integrating the rest of Fedora infrastructure. Of course, provide a
way for all of them to communicate with each other
Or do J5 have different view about this?, both idea ( improve MyFedora
/ improve PackageDB ) sounds okay to me, just that I feel that if
MyFedora implements those features, PackageDB and the effort made for
it previously would be rendered of no-use (or perhaps thats what one
of MyFedora's goal - to obsolete packagedb ) ..
