So we’ve been talking about a reincarnation of Fedora Community (the app).
Stuff to take note of:
- Yes, it looks like Facebook. (As my coworker Partha likes to remind me, Fedora had the white lowercase f on blue first. 🙂 )
- The main navbar for the package is directly under its name & summary. Additional information about the package is available via nav items along the right sidebar, but what we thought was the most important we put in the main navbar. What do you think about which is most important and which is not?
- In the main navbar we have:
- Bugs – this will be somewhat like the current bugs tab in Fedora Community.
- Contents – this will be like running rpm -ql on the package; it will list out all the files it includes.
- Changelog – a changelog of the package, similar to what Fedora Community has now.
- Sources – this will show patches we’ve applied if any, the spec file, the git repo for source, the tarball, maybe diffs. (SRPM should be available here too I think.)
- Relationships – requires / dependences / provides / obsoletes / etc. information. Maybe like this mockup, but less crappy. Also this tab will let you know which package is dating which. I hear inkscape and blender have gotten engaged!
- There’s a section for upstream information, but we’re not quite sure how we’ll get all of that. There is an XML based format called dope (sp?) that some upstreams use, so maybe that will be involved.
- A per-package events stream!
There’s more ideas here; see for yourself.
What do you think?
