Сompare versions of ROSA packages with latest upstream

Сообщение ДроноваЮ » 05 июн 2012, 17:43

Hello folks,
For those of you who want to compare versions of packages in ROSA with the latest upstream releases, we have setup a page where this can be easily done:
http://upstream-tracker.org/updates/rosa/main/
The page currently contains data for rosa2012lts/main/release packages only; support for main/updates will be added soon. We can also add support for contrib in future, if there is such a need. We can also add cooker packages once they are built and published in ABF.
This page is an analogue of
http://youri.zarb.org/demo/mandriva/updates.html
with that difference that it compares ROSA packages directly with upstream, not with Debian/Gentoo/Freshmeat/... The table structure is similar; 'maintainer' field is currently absent, it will be added once we implement integration with ABF maintainer db. After that, we can also setup mail notifications for maintainers about new packages.
For some packages the data is not available yet, it will appear gradually during the next weeks.
The data is collected automatically and there can be some strange results, but for the most packages everything should work fine.
One can notice that the page is implemented as a part of Upstream Tracker (http://upstream-tracker.org/, currently maintained by ROSA developers) whose main purpose is to analyze compatibility between different library versions. Maintainers can use Upstream Tracker to check which breaks can happen if they update some library to a newer version; probably in future we will integrate such possibilities with the package update tracker.
Hopefully this page (as well as Upstream Tracker itself) will be useful for some of you. Feel free to express any ideas and suggestions about improvements and enhancements which you want to be added.

Please note: this is rather 'beta' version (not many features, and data for many packages is missing atm). Once we elaborate the page, a wiki article or a blog post on this topic will be announced.
