Blends web sentinel
Description of the project: In DebianPureBlends one key feature is the so called web sentinel which is featuring several parts like so called tasks pages (example from Debian Science), bugs pages (example from Debian Med), a so called thermometer (example from Debian GIS) and there might be other interesting features to be invented. The web sentinel is in principle based on data obtained from UltimateDebianDatabase but this is not yet consistently implemented and needs a partly or fully rewrite of the tools.
Confirmed Mentor: Andreas Tille
How to contact the mentor: firstname.lastname@example.org
Confirmed co-mentors: N/A
Deliverables of the project: More flexible and new web sentinel components
Desirable skills: Python, SQL (UDD is a PostgreSQL database)
What the student will learn: The student will be introduced into DebianPureBlends which are dealing with interesting topics and have inviting teams - at least one of them might be of certain interest for the student. Diving into UltimateDebianDatabase is also a very interesting thing since the student will get a great overview about metadata around the whole Debian universe.
