#1138 new enhancement

Add descriptor files to repositories

Reported by: Erik Schnetter Owned by: Eric Seidel
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: GetComponents Version:
Keywords: Cc:

Description

Put, into each repository, a small file that describes the repository content to GetComponents:

  • list of thorns
  • where the thorns are in the repository's directory structure
  • etc.?

This information then does not need to be repeated in thorn lists.

Do you mean 'arrangements', as most thorns use their own repositories?

comment:2 Changed 6 years ago by Erik Schnetter

I mean that these files should be in repositories, so that one can easily see what thorns are in the repositories.

comment:3 Changed 6 years ago by Frank Löffler

Do you mean you would like to only specify within a thornlist 'Thorn X from arrangement list Y (which would mean a URL to a thornlist)' and within that arrangement list you would get the remaining information (like how to actually get to the thorns)?

I mean e.g. the definition of REPO_PATH. I'm not sure about arrangements -- I'm not sure whether a repository should specify what the contained thorns' arrangement names are. This makes sense for large repositories, but not for small repositories.
