The openSUSE Build Service is the tool that openSUSE developers use to build the packages that make up the distro. To the regular openSUSE user and contributor it does its job well. However, anyone who has spent an extensive amount of time with it have found a few sharp corners. Sankar is trying to fix some of those corners by writing a new client, which looks like fun.
But, I think with some minor tweaks we can get the web ui in better condition.
So, I started off by writing 4 patches that fix the couple of issues that I find most annoying.
Issue #1- lots of clicks to get to download URL for a repo
Issue #2- “Actions” menu on package and project page isn’t very friendly and those pages are mostly blank anyways. Show me the buttons! :)
If you have other things that you think should be fixed leave a comment below and I will try to fix them.
Michal Marek has suggested making the breadcrumbs that are colon seperated into individual links to each subproject. I am working on that next.
