[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Severity: wishlist
Usertags: pts


Some days ago I proposed a few patches for the PTS to show links to
patch-tracker.d.o. After discussing a bit this with some people (mostly
zack and hertzog), I propose here an enhanced version of that.

I already got in touch with seanius and proposed a few patches to export
a summary of the patches used within each package in a JSON formatted
file. These patches are still waiting for review, but I'm confident that
they'll eventually be accepted.

The patch I'm attaching here uses such information to how, for each
version of the package, the number of patches and a star ('*') if the
package also conveys modification outside the debian/ dir in the
.diff.gz/.debian.tar.gz patch.

The code still has one very dirty hack (a hardcoded dictionary for
converting release name from lenny,squeeze,wheezey to
oldstable,stable,testing). I'm not sure about how to fix it, suggestions
welcome. Moreover, it lacks of the infrastructure to actually download
from patch-tracker.d.o the JSON file that has to be processed (after
all, that file doesn't exist yet!).

Comments/suggestions welcome.

Thanks, Gio.
