Description Marian Csontos 2010-06-25 09:00:22 UTC
Description of problem:
Client can not access task's metadata.
Enabling this would allow more flexible workflow creation. See e.g.:

* Bug 582579  - Beaker (lib) is unable to recognize selinux policy
* Bug 582245 - [RFE] new Task library filter for "Run For" Makefile field

This would also help offload some potentially CPU demanding processing to client-machines. Let the server do the easy job (e.g. filter by TestType and Package) and client the rest...

Plus making use of new fields in metadata would be much easier...
