Ticket #312 (closed defect: fixed)
Update form package build autocompletetion not working well
|Reported by:||hno||Owned by:|
The package build autocompletion feature in the new update request form is not working well. If just a package name is entered then a long list of all available builds in that package is given in mostly random order it seems. If one tries to enter some parts of the version number as well no builds at all is given.
Some suggestions to improve this:
- Sort the returned builds in chronological order with newest first.
- Allow for partial version number entry. I.e. bzr-1.13 should return bzr-1.13.1-1.fc10, bzr-1.13.1-1.fc11, bzr-1.13-1.fc10, bzr-1.13-1.fc11 (all builds starting with 1.13 followed by a non-digit, sorted chronologically with newest first).
- Don't include rawhide releases (currently f11) in the package autocompletion.
- Perhaps add a release specification separate from the builds. Less risk of confusion that way, especially when there is multiple packages which have to be released together in one update.
