revu is the current working name of a review tool for [:MOTU] Uploads. This service is highly experimental at the moment and involves quite some manual interaction. The service is located at http://siretart.tauware.de/revu

To register as reviewer

Please send a signed and encrypted mail with your password and GnuPG keyid to siretart@tauware.de. I will add you as Reviewer to the database and add your key to the uploaders keyring.

To register as uploader

Please send a signed email with your GnuPG keyid to siretart@tauware.de. I will add you then to the uploaders keyring.

Howto login

With adding you to the keyring, you should have been added to the database with the password you've choosen in the email. Please use the full email address as login name. If you didn't specify one, I'll take the From: address from your email

Howto upload

The upload process is similar to uploading to ubuntu, see [:Uploads]. Here is a dput snippet:

  [revu]
  fqdn = tauware.de
  incoming = /
  login = anonymous

Don't forget to adjust your [DEFAULT] section to have an entry like this:

  default_host_main = revu

Please do only signed uploads, and please always include the orig tarball. Otherwise reviewers won't be able to look at your extracted source package. When building with dpkg-buildpackage, you can use options "-S -sa -rfakeroot" to build only the source package and also include the original source in the package.

After the package is built, you can use dput with the above config file changes to upload it by specifying just the *.changes file that was created, ie. dput *_source.changes. If your firewall requires a passive FTP, dput will seem to hang while uploading. In that case, try "dput -P *_source.changes".

Processing of uploads is done every 5 min. So, if your upload doesn't show up, please contact siretart@tauware.de.

This service sucks / I can do better

Please contact one of siretart, sistpoty or \sh in #ubuntu-motu for access to the svn repository and help us to improve Wink ;)

Feature Requests

  • Autobuilding

Yes, I'll love that, too. This will be implemented in the next version, since I cannot do that on tauware.de. I'm in contact with \sh and ogra for a solution. If you have experience in setting up an sbuild for us, just contact us!

  • Let users nuke their uploads
  • Let users update their uploads

Both are interesting requests, I hope to get the first one implemented soon.

  • RSS feeds for new comments / new uploads
  • Jabber/IRC bot bot announcing new uploads/comments

Both are quite low priority on the list. Consider contributing Wink ;)

Completed Feature Requests

  • old tag - Admins can "archive" uploads. Possibility to hide archived uploads pending
  • auto lintian/linda
  • Contributors can now comment on own uploads

Can I have a look at the code? What about svn access?

Try this link: http://siretart.tauware.de/revu-r30.tar.gz For svn access contact me via email, I'll arrange something
