rel-html is designed to parse naked index html pages with tarballs on a software project and automatically produce a nice shiny HTML5 release page for you. It takes as input a configuration file, rel-html.cfg, in which you can specify attributes for the release. Exact stable releases are inferred based on some hints, but we still require at least the base releases that are supported to be annoated.
Figure out how to automatically determine releases from git.
It seems that the way to go is to require a config file for the project with the oldest stable release supported and then annotate eols. We do this right now, so rel-html would just need to be modified to infer newer releases.
The Linux kernel now (as of 2013-03-10) has json file for releases:
We need to do a few things then:
- Get other projects to use json for releases - Add json intepreter support to rel-html
If projects don't use json releases files as the Linux kernel does then the current usage of HTMLParser would allow us to parse / infer releases for us.
