Description Alex Lancaster 2005-06-28 06:45:47 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050513 Galeon/1.3.21

Description of problem:
It would be useful if http://fedora.redhat.com/ (as well as http://fedoraproject.org/) could have a prominently-linked repoview-generated list of packages in Fedora Core like Fedora Extras (FE).  

Currently FE has repoview enabled:

http://fedoraproject.org/extras/4/i386/repodata/
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/extras/4/i386/repodata/

(although there is no link to either of these repoviews on http://fedora.redhat.com/projects/extras/)

For consistency the URL(s) would be:

http://fedoraproject.org/core/4/i386/repodata/
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/4/i386/repodata/

(or somesuch)

Currently there appears to be no way to get a good human-readable overview of the packages in FC4 on a website except for looking through the RPMS directory (or using a GUI yumex or synaptic).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. View fedora.redhat.com
2.
3.

Would also be useful to add Updates to this list, if possible, so you could see
at a glance the list of most recently updated FC4 packages.
Comment 2 Alex Lancaster 2005-06-28 07:08:12 EDT
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraExtrasSchedule lists 
"Repoview for fedora.redhat.com/packages/" as being "closed" on 21 Apr with the
a comment that "repoview will be very useful for Fedora Core as well as for
Fedora Extras", but 

http://fedora.redhat.com/packages is 404.
Comment 3 Patrick Barnes 2005-11-15 15:33:09 EST
Has any progress been made on this front?  It looks like this has been
forgotten.  It would certainly be nice to have this.

On a slightly related note, Thomas Chung, Seth Vidal, Luke Macken and myself
have discussed adding a listing like the one available at
http://fedoranews.org/mediawiki/index.php/Fedora_Updates to fedoraproject.org. 
This would provide users a list of packages that have been updated.
Comment 4 Alex Lancaster 2005-11-28 08:37:36 EST
Looks like Extras repoview packages have either been dropped and/or are missing,
see: bug #174357.
Comment 5 Rahul Sundaram 2006-01-22 20:31:54 EST
Jesse Keating added a repoview for Fedora devel repository. When it reaches FC5
we would have one for core too. I am closing this report. Thank you.

Which happens to be here, just had to hunt around for the URL... ;-)

http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/development/i386/repodata/

Thanks.

Repoview has disappeared from:

http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/development/i386/repodata/

Re-opening bug.
Comment 8 Jesse Keating 2006-02-15 18:05:42 EST
repoview broke for a bit when yum's comps handling changed.  This has been fixed
and repoview has been turned back on.

When will it re-appear on the site?
