Re: [Pulp-list] status_path

I am aware that we'd need to coordinate this change with katello.

Last sprint, I reviewed both consumer and consumer group flows as related to package &
package group install. This includes packages installed as part of errata installs as
well. In each of these flows, the consumers, consumergroups and repositories controllers
instrument the returned task dict with a "status_path". The path is call back into the
controller with the task ID. Each of these (3) controllers have duplicate implementations
as follows:

task_info = self.task_status(action_id)
if task_info is None:
return self.not_found('No %s with id %s found' % (action_name, action_id))
return self.ok(task_info)

We also have a Task WS controller added primarily for debugging which can also be query a
task by ID which returns a summary of the task including its status. Last sprint I added
the "job" stuff and chose not to follow this pattern as it seemed to add complexity and no
value (unless I missed something).

Since we now have a REST api to query for both job and task summary information, I'd like
discontinue the use of task['status_path'] and simply have the CLI (and misc clients) use
the JobAPI.info() and TaskAPI.info() when polling for job/task status. To do this, I would
need to change perms on controllers/Task.GET() from super_user_only=True to: READ.

Any Objections?

Is there value in the current approach that I'm missing?
