is there a way to retrieve the version number of a package,
possibly even through the publically accessible part of the API?

For factory packages you can retrieve a summary with
osc api /status/project/openSUSE:Factory

Is the /status URL documented somewhere?
I can't find it at

I'd like to retrieve version number for a single package.

Then better use
osc api '/source/openSUSE:Factory/perl?view=info&parse=1'

Michael implemented this last week.

Through /public/source/<project>/<package>?view=info&parse=1
it is publically accessible.

This is pure luck due to a miss configuration in lighttpd setup.

Please never ever use /public, it is just for remote OBS instances
and may change at any time.

It is not part of official api.

Thanks a lot, this is exactly what I
was looking for and allows for easy version checking/comparison
with upstream projects.
