Reported by: tardyp Owned by: ChaseZhang
Priority: major Milestone: undecided
Version: 0.8.10 Keywords: web, simple

Description (last modified by tardyp)

It should be easy to add version info customization for about page

  • version of the master.cfg, and its python dependancies
  • name of the project
  • url of the project


  • 'www' config dictionary should take a 'versions' argument that has key="<component name>" value="<version>"
  • versions are mixed in with python, twisted, and buildbot version, automatically found by core
  • versions, name, and url are transmitted via config to the UI, and displayed in about page

I'd like to finish this task but I have some questions.

I have no idea what is a version of the master.cfg and its python dependencies. Is the version a attribute maintained by the user by hand?

That's all part of the subtasks. The idea would be to provide all of the version information via Python code (including some input from c['www'] in master.cfg), and then make that available to the Angular code.

I've done something vaguely similar in relengapi - and if that helps you get started.
