=== Stage 0 ===
We will ship a little working demo as proof of concept and base of future work.

We will (in order):
 * Implement existing Vhosts editing. This will likely parse only rapache-created vhosts at first (refactoring. mini-parser implementation)
 * Code refactoring and QA: Class and Python Packages Naming.
 * First BZR push (Yay !)
 * We should backup /etc/apache2 and /etc/hosts in ~/.rapache since this is still alphish software and we don't like people curses :)
 * Not everyone follows the right procedure for vhost creation and just create a *.conf in sites-enabled. We should note that and offer the user to normalize the situation
 * Define complete software interface (comprising future features), leaving invisible not yet implemented parts.
 * First bugs to be dealt with
   * Cancelling an operation when asked for root password should stop the entire procedure.
 * Code QA.
Notes:
 * Demo will work only on localhost (so only useful for test/dev websites)


=== stage 1 ===
 * Add rosetta support for translate
 * Apache (mostly) complete config
 * Sniff installed package and offer user to install what it's needed to perform the requested action.
 * Simple configuration wizards for common apps
 * QA number 2

=== Stage 2 ===
Version 0.7:

Rapache is a simple tool for remotely managing and configuring an apache2 server.

If you need a simpler software just to start/stop apache2 and mysql, check localhost-indicator

Development environment

* There are many different branch developments.

ROAD MAP

Version 0.7:

  • Connect SSH servers to configure remote apaches
  • bookmark SSH servers
  • Avahi ? Smile :)

  • Policykit ?
    • maybe not, we can't use that on ssh servers.
    • how to get root privileges via ssh ? Not every server allow remote root login (ubuntu's for example ;-))
  • QA 3

Use cases

  • Tony is a webdesigner. He don't want to mess with apache, he wants to get started customizing wordpress themes on localhost.
  • Ralph is a small company's webmaster. Since he has lot of stuff to get done, he don't want to loose time configuring apache via commandline
