Welcome to mageia-app-db's project home¶
What is mageia-app-db ?¶We want to produce a website dedicated to mageia's applications and packages, and whose main goals are be :
- allow to browse the package database, provide the main informations about packages, like any other distribution does (see http://www.debian.org/distrib/packages for example).
- focus on interaction between users, testers and packagers
- from users to packagers : backports requests, new soft requests (with a voting system), ...
- from packagers to users/testers : testing requests, ie packagers asking users to test a certain package before pushing it to the official repositories, ...
- customizable user notifications on your home page, RSS feed or e-mail (new backport available for you preferred soft, new update candidate available and awaiting testing...)
See the full record of user needs and potential functionalities here : NeedsAndFunctionalities
