as a web app. This would let users enter information from a patch or crash
and call out to get_maintainers.pl. The current project just lets users
enter in a file path and it displays the output as is. There's lots of options
for what we could do with the output (omitting e-mails for those maintainers
who don't want to participate, printing out more helpful warnings etc.)
The project is at https://pagure.io/get_maintainers and is not even close
to ready for primetime (passing data to get_maintainer.pl almost certainly
needs more thought). I'm mostly interested if anyone else would find this
useful or has general feedback.
Is there a website already setup too?
Not yet. You have to run the app locally.
