[openFATE 311187] Anonymous source package download from web interface using disturl
Feature changed by: Adrian Schröter (adrianSuSE)
Feature #311187, revision 4
Title: Anonymous source package download from web interface using
disturl

Buildservice: Done
+ Milestone: 2.3
Priority
Requester: Important

Requested by: Ciaran Farrell (babelworx)
Partner organization: openSUSE.org

Description:
Using the disturl tag of our rpm package it is possible to find out
exactly where the corresponding source for the binary rpm is located.
For example, using osc:
osc co -r <HASH> <project> <package> will download the exact source
code for the binary rpm. However, to use osc a novell.com/buildservice
account is necessary. Suggested is a corresponding web interface
feature where even anonymous users can download the exact corresponding
source to a binary rpm.

Business case (Partner benefit):
openSUSE.org: To make it easy for anyone with a rpm to quickly and
easily download the exact corresponding source code
