[openFATE 312468] Project Bretzn app-store to be integrated into opensuse 12.1
Feature changed by: David Lemke (canislycan)
Feature #312468, revision 8
Title: Project Bretzn app-store to be integrated into opensuse 12.1

openSUSE Distribution: Unconfirmed
Requester: Important

Requested by: Jedi Beeftrix (jedibeeftrix)
Partner organization:

Purpose: 1. Make it easy for developers to release an application 2.
Make it easy for developers to market and for users to learn about that
application 3. Make it easy for users to install the application
Project Bretzn consists of three parts: the building of the package,
the publishing of the application, the marketing to the users and the
feedback cycle back to the developer. The building part consists of
plugins for IDE’s and integration with Build Services and using Lubos
Lunak’s OBS Generator (yes, still looking for a new name ) to
automatically generate cross-platform build files. Publishing sends the
app to a variety of App Stores and then markets it through announcing
it on Facebook, Twitter, via a RSS feed and the Social Desktop .
Finally, users can provide feedback by rating the application and
commenting on it, by writing bug reports and send messages to mailing
lists or forums. And all of that with one click (well, maybe a few
more). Status (as of Linuxtag 2011):
This sounds like the kind of thing we want!

Use Case:
The greatest use of this is in allowing users to know what is available
and read reviews and descriptions, as opposed to looking around online
then looking in repos.

sorry, this is a duplicate of feature 310778 :D
And hopefully Bretzn will make it - problem is lack of development
right now. Anyone who knows a bit of QML could finish it in 2-3 weeks,
Frank is willing to mentor anyone who has time. So if whoever reads
this is up for it, just let me/him know :D

#2: Jedi Beeftrix (jedibeeftrix) (2011-06-12 11:52:47) (reply to #1)
cheers Jos.

+ #3: David Lemke (canislycan) (2011-06-24 09:32:54)
+ Sounds great, just subtract the Failbook part. =D
