Debbug Browse has just been introduced! It is a foray into the wild world of Web Services. The particular Web Service I am targetting is the Debbug SOAP interface. It allows one to search for bugs on a certain package, maintained by a certain person/group, or of a certain severity. It's your one-stop-shop for read-only Debian BTS access! It is a quite interesting piece of tech, and I believe a browser for this information would be useful.
Currently, it looks like this. More documentation and development will be forthcoming.
Debbug Browse is written in Ruby --- bad Ruby, as this is my first foray into the language --- utilizing the tech from KDE's language bindings. The bindings are quite similar to their Python bindings, and once I had some concepts of the language, I was able to transfer my knowledge. I'm utilizing the soap support from Debian's libruby package, which is quite adequate for my needs, and easier to follow than the recommended Python package. I would recommend anyone with a mind to try Ruby give them a shot as the initial introduction.
