stuff related to extend the coverage of the Software Heritage archive
Wed, Jun 17
@lewo it's used in our DB but also exposed in the swh-web UI in search results (and in the future it is going to be also be a field for user searches, so that you can search, e.g., "emacs" only in the list of packages archived from a given origin type).
We need a name for this origin type, one of the hardest problem in CS :-)
Where is it used? Is it a new attribute?
We actually had to choose a name for the visit type, and with a lot of inspiration, we choose nixguix :-/
Do you mean filter the unsupported urls for the field "urls" in the "type": "url"?
Or do you mean only export "type": "url" and remove all the other types from 'sources.json', for instance "git"?
Thank you for the notification. I have tried to answer by email but I could have failed. Anyway.

Repology.org went with "Gnu Guix".

What do you think @ardumont ?
The nixguix loader is working well since 2 weeks on the nixpkgs sources.json file!
So, we can now consider the sources.json file format as stable and you could make the required changes on your sources.json file. A new SHW origin should then be added.

This task describes in detail what kind of scheduling policy we should implement, but it doesn't help much figure out what the next steps should be.

I've add multiple looks to the proposed gitea lister.
This looks fine to me, i've accepted it but not completely.
If some other team member could do a second pass, that'd be neat.

As a rapid follow up, here is the current structure of the sources.json the
loader nixguix is able to ingest. It's not that much different than what @lewo
initially proposed in the lister diff.

There has been movement in T1991 (which was not referenced as subtask so that
did now show). I fixed that.

Has there been much movement with this? It looks like only packages relying on git are archived.

Hi, I proposed a first version with the new changes (D2799).
@cjwatson it should be coherent with your snippet.
If somebody is used to be working with listers I would be glad to hear some remarks over how I implemented it.

Unfortunately, try.gogs.io's API is hidden behind auth so I can't confirm that the responses actually have the same shape between gogs and gitea.
Thanks for submitting this request. There's a good chance that this can be the same lister as gogs: T1721.

Yep, I'm not annoyed, just being emphatic about what we want to see. :-)
Hi Colin (@cjwatson), nice to meet you here !

I'm one of the developers on the Launchpad team. A user identified as "leni" spoke to us about this on IRC last week; it so happened that the Launchpad team were in the middle of an in-person sprint at the time, so we were able to discuss the problem fairly quickly and put together a plan to improve our API. I implemented those improvements shortly afterwards. They aren't quite deployed on production yet, but they should be very soon. Unfortunately I don't have any contact details for leni unless they happen to join IRC, so I'm posting a summary of the discussion and my improvements here, which is probably a useful thing to do anyway.

What is the current status of this task ?

Given this is done, where can one see the timeline of visits for a given origin coming from GNU?

In the  page, there is an archive link (or something) which lists the old associated artifacts (so apriori, no more need for the mran mirror).
