[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: www.debian.org
Severity: normal

Hi,

I work on a package since 82 days but on wnpp page I can see '201 days in
preparation'.

I talk about this package. [1]

How I get 82 ?
* ITP of the package was annonced on 'Sun, 29 Aug 2010 13:12:05 GMT'
* Today it's Fri, 19 Nov 2010
=> difference is 2 month and 21 days

So I think this package is 'in preparation' since 82 days not 201 days.

Best regards,

Thomas PIERSON

 It was filed on May 1st actually, I guess that's where the difference
comes from. I guess making the code that generates the data aware of
retitle and start calculating from there would require a fair bit of
work, though.

 Thanks,
Rhonda

I plan to provide those pages by “age since initiation” and “age since
last activity” as requested in #505254. Would these two mentions in the
list address this issue? It won't exactly provide the number of day of
work, as Gerfried said, it would require a fair amount of trick, and the
more I think about it, the more I can think of corner cases anyway.

Regards

David

Sure, the main goal is to have the ability to spot if WNPP are being
worked on. If the bug has been reported yesterday, and someone updated
it today, we can claim without hurting anyone (in a page that claims to
be updated daily) that it is worked on since yesterday without further
notice. The interesting part is to be able to spot that someone did
update a bug report two weeks ago, even if the bug has initially been
reported five years ago.

;-). "tomorrow" is not part of the usable strings, and people took care
before me to provide a reliable way to count those days, I didn't
reinvent the wheel here.

Indeed better, thanks
