Ooh Ooh! Could you add some of these thoughts to this ticket for a notification service?On Fri, 2008-02-15 at 12:21 +0000, Jonathan Underwood wrote:Personally, if you could script opening a BZ, I'd welcome that.I don't like the idea of programs opening bugzilla reports. Many issues like this can change for reasons entirely out of my control (transient network outage, breakage in underlying libraries or toolchain, etc.). First, ideally we would have a way for people to contribute checks like this for the Fedora infrastructure, rather than running it on their personal computers. Second, we should have a way for software to add to a "problem feed", something that would be exported as RSS. So for example, Matt's "rebuild everything for rawhide" script could add a notice "your package failed to rebuild". This way I'd get notification, but if it was just today's GCC or kernel or some underlying library being broken, the problem just drops off naturally, without creating a task for me to deal with. Kevin's script could add an entry for "source link broken". However if it *is* a bug in my package, then a human can come along and click one link "Create bugzilla bug". Perhaps the My Fedora infrastructure under development could provide something like this.
https://fedorahosted.org/fedora-infrastructure/ticket/151I haven't had time to work on that but I think your thoughts are an excellent summary of what I wish we could do there. (Adding J5 to the ticket so he can think about if we should integrate it into MyFedora as well.)
