Time Spent

60 hours.

Highlights

The week was spent mostly cleaning and packaging the code accumulated over the summer. To demonstrate some of the aspects of the Arsenal library, I also created a proof-of-concept CGI script which upstreams Launchpad attachments for a bug to a remote Bugzilla. The task was fun, as the efforts put into refactoring things into launchpadlib-toolkit and BugzillaAdapter finally paid off and it took only a few hours to get the script working (that too with most of the time spent learning AJAX).

Concerns

None.

Waiting Items

None.

Stalled Items

None.

Accomplishments

  • Branch, Merge Revision:
    • Revision: Added support for quilt.
    • Revision: Added support for using patch utility for quilt packages where the diff files update debian/* stuff themselves.
    • Revision: Cleaned up the library to provide LaunchpadApplication and LaunchpadBugzillaApplication.
    • Revision: Fixed BugPatcher to use LaunchpadApplication as base class.
    • Revision: Cleaned up LaunchpadBugzillaApplication to take username password as arguments instead of modifiers.
  • Branch, Merge Revision: Fixed packaging issues to release debs for Karmic and Lucid.
  • Branch: Implemented a CGI script demonstrating the upstreaming capabilities of Arsenal library. An example run can be seen in this screencast.

Minor Tasks

  • Revision: Some more code cleanup.
  • Revision: Check launchpadlib version before appending ‘/beta‘ during API URL detection.

Actions for the Following Report

  • Fill the final evaluation.
  • Write a summary of the overall GSoC experience.
  • Start waiting for the t-shirt.

Time Spent

90 hours.

Highlights

  • Refactored Attachment Upstreamer in order to migrate Launchpad and Bugzilla chores to launchpadlib-toolkit and BugzillaAdapter.
  • Implemented match-upstream.py for matchmaking Launchpad bugs in remote trackers.
  • Implemented bug-patcher.py for generating patched Debian packages for Launchpad bugs.

Concerns

None.

Waiting Items

None.

Stalled Items

None.

Accomplishments

  • Branch, Merge Revision: Migrated Attachment Upstreamer to use launchpadlib-toolkit.
  • Branch, Merge Revision: Migrated Attachment Upstreamer to use BugzillaAdapter.
  • Revision: Updated launchpadlib-toolkit to serve scripts such as Attachment Upstreamer through attachment filters and wrappers.
  • Branch, Merge Revision: Implemented match-upstream.py with support for multiple level searches for finding a bug’s attributes in a remote tracker. Supports searching titles, git commit ids and attachment filenames.
  • Branch: Implemented bug-patcher.py with support for modifying Debian packages which use cdbs patch system to generate a patched version using a bug’s attachments.

Minor Tasks

  • Created a LaunchpadBugzillaApp class which shares majority of the initialization code for send-attachments-upstream.py, match-upstream.py and bug-patcher.py.
  • Fixed various bugs in LaunchpadBugzillaApp for dealing with Gnome Keyring and Launchpad authentication.
  • Added various filters to launchpadlib-toolkit.

Actions for the Following Report

  • LaunchpadBugzillaApp should be derived from LaunchpadApp which would allow using the latter for scripts such as bug-patcher.py where Bugzilla portions aren’t required.
  • Update Bug Patcher to include support for remaining Debian patch systems.
  • Clean up the code accumulated over GSoC development and write tests.
