Fedora project goodies

Filed under
Linux

Two minor issues of the fedoraproject web pages and services have been fixed recently: the repoview is back again, and the build service search is now case-insensitive. In the meantime the package database shapes up to a central place for all package related tasks.

RepoView

Fedora uses like most of the RPM distributions the XML package metadata repository format. The metadata tools allow the administrator to provide a HTML page with information of the packages, recent updates, etc. This was for example available in the old Fedora Extras repository. The new Fedora repositories however did not provide such a HTML page - you had to get the information from other places.

But now, a bug report later, repoview is back - and works pretty well.
