[opensuse-project] GSoC: Offline update
Hello opensuse-projects!

I learned just today that I won't have a lot to do in summer. So I want to try and commit myself to open source and openSUSE!

I have put up a preliminary application at

The project that I'm talking about is a convenient way to update and install packages on a "offline" openSUSE box. (Of course the intermediate step with an "online" computer is unavoidable if you don't want to mirror all the repos for offline usage. Also, I have the feeling that this might already exist somewhere but I haven't found it yet :-) )

I'm hoping to see if anyone is interested in this project or thinks that this would be useful. If so, I'd also be lacking a mentor ;-)

Looking forward to feedback!

To introduce myself, I've been using SuSE some time back in 2001 and since 10.2 also openSUSE. I'm mostly a user and I wrote some scripts for personal use or for IRC. Currently a student in Leipzig, Germany. I've been in touch with freely available source code for a while, probably 1999 when I was working with iKonboard setting up a web community and later on providing free tech support for phpBB, before I switched to mostly administration tasks on then debian-based webservers. Most of the programming work I've done happened to be in Perl, if that has any meaning. But so far I didn't manage to get involved in anything big.

Cheers, Nei
