* Status
* Upstream Project
* Source link handling


* jcborn: worked on redirector scanner checks now if mirror servers can

DVD iso files.
Suggestion to check also for > 4GB size problems.

Welcome Tom :)

Merge request api call exists in svn but is not yet deployed
Missing stuff:
-> api lacks permission checks.
-> no schema check yet.

* poeml requested security audith for download redirector
helped OpenOffice team to install own redirector for them.

Upstream Project:

We discussed a proposal to define a project for a package where the next
version gets developed. This would be especially usefull for
openSUSE:Factory, where everybody (and also our tools) gets a hint who does
maintain it usually. This would also obsoleted a seperated review step on

The concept is described at:

However we agreed on
* using <maintainedin> instead of <upstreamproject> to avoid confusing with
real source upstream. We ask for review or better proposal for the tag from
Klaas :)
* Suggestion <maintainedin> should also offer to define a package optinally.
* open question: How to handle this information for stable distribution
branch, like when branching openSUSE:12.3 away from openSUSE:Factory.

Source Link:

While discussing the source handling itself, what osc should do and so on we
figured out some missing features in source link implementation we need:

* remove files functionality
* add changelog entry (In which relation is this to merge request
description ?

osc shall support to work on _link file sources directly, but also offer to
work on merged sources but submitting the user changes only with a _link

* The "merge request" should get renamed to "submit request".

We did not finish our discussion, so we will follow up by mail an follow up
tomorrow together with Klaas.
