[opensuse-buildservice] extending the /source/project backend call
Hi,

what about extending the /source/project backend call with an
additional "withsrcmd5" query parameter? Instead of the plain
package list it will return also the latest srcmd5 for each
package.
This call can be used by osc to check which packages in a local
project have to be updated. It would probably speed up the
update process for large projects because osc only needs to
do one http request (instead one for each package) in order
to decide if a package has to be updated or not.

A drawback is that this call might be a bit "expensive" because
for each package the getfilelist() function has to be called
(a simple getrev() for each package won't work with links or
branches).

Any opinions?
