[opensuse-buildservice] OBS mobile: project / package view changes
Hi all,

I'm working on improving the project / package views in OBS mobile. There are a few changes I'd like to propose and discuss. It would be great to find out if they would help make OBS mobile more efficient and powerful to the mobile client users before final implementation.

Discussion is also posted on my blog: http://obsforandroid.wordpress.com/2011/06/10/obs-mobile-package-page-makeover/

1. Add “Project Status” on the project view page to indicate the overall real-time status of this project, possibly categorized as follows:

- Stable: project is ready for end-users to use.
- Testing: project should work from a developer’s point of view, but needs more testing.
- Development: project is in a random state; it might work.
- Private: project is not intended for public use.

2. Organize the package view page like this: http://susepaste.org/45272178

Description tab would be removed from this page to reduce redundancy, since it already appears on previous few pages.

Files, Requests, and Failures would be changed to collapsible view, and have a count in the header to show the latest status, so that the user doesn’t have to tap open each button: http://susepaste.org/39817759

A tab called Notes would be added to this page to show some other packages (the links will go to the corresponding package view pages) in the commit history that might trigger a rebuild of the current package. It might look something like this: http://susepaste.org/5804598

3. About these buttons: are they better bearing collapsible views or sliding over to related screens?
For example, here's the sliding view of Repositories: http://susepaste.org/45395077 vs. collapsible view: http://susepaste.org/26703741

Of course, we still need to convert those html webpage views to mobile views.

So, what do you think of these changes? How could I make it better? Any comments and suggestions would be greatly appreciated!


Thanks in advance,
Justine Leng
