[New: openFATE 313455] Localonly source service runs from webui
Feature added by: Claudio Freire (klaussfreire)

Feature #313455, revision 1
Title: Localonly source service runs from webui

Buildservice: Unconfirmed
Requester: Important

Requested by: Claudio Freire (klaussfreire)
Partner organization:

The WebUI should have a way to mark services as "mode=localonly", trigger their
execution in the WebUI itself, and commit back the results.

When uploading files from a URL, a checkbox should be included to mark the
upload as a one-time operation, which would use this mechanism (localonly
source service and WebUI-based run).

Test Case:

Use Case:
Packages with huge sources, big enough to be a hassle for low-bandwidth
connections, aimed at Factory which forbids use of remote-enabled source

Business case (Partner benefit): Some packages, especially games, contain massive amounts of data
in their tarballs. Uploading them requires a very good connection, and is
sometimes difficult for the packager. Source services are great for this,
because they make the build hosts download instead of the packager, which have
a massively better connection, but by policy some projects (notably Factory)
don't allow them.

In fact, it's quite unnecessary to download the same sources every time. Source
services marked "localonly" allow OBS to specify the one-time download of
sources, but the results have to be committed by the packager, which sometimes
lacks a good enough connection.
