The web application would allow users to input and upload information about packages. Some information will be uploaded by HaikuDepot itself, such as when a user creates or edits her rating and review/comment for a given package version.

    19 HaikuDepot currently displays dummy package data. It is mostly ready for the merge of the PM git branch. Once that is done, the initial list of packages will be retrieved via the new Package Kit APIs. The API will also be used to obtain information about a package's status and the available actions that can be performed on it. And of course those actions need to be triggered. Another area of work will be presenting progress information for tasks that (may) take a bit longer, and appropriate error reporting and resolving.
