Create supplemental cert infrastructure for hwcatalog
Last modified: 2009-03-04 13:17:27 EST
Description of problem:
The current method of certification requires supplemental certs to add new/previously untested hardware support to existing certified systems. Once created, there's no easy way to link the supplemental certs to their existing parent systems. I propose that we include an "Add Supplemental Certification" section, similar to the existing "Clone Certification" section, to every closed cert, and change the name of the current "Internal Relationships" field that tracks supplemental certs to "Supplemental Certifications". The "Add Supplemental Certification" section should include a button to create the supplemental cert, a field to describe the purpose of the supplemental cert and an optional field to upload a supplemental results package. Upon clicking the button, BZ would create a new cert entry, copying the Vendor, Make, Model and URL of the original, it would add the description field as a comment, attach the optional package as a results package and link the parent and supplemental cert.
What would also be helpful is if the supplemental certs were inherited by clones. That way, when you viewed a cloned cert, you could see the supplemental certs linked to its parent cert.
