==Proposal Description==
 
The proposal is based on a Fedora GSoC 2013 idea by Tim Flink.
 
===An overview of your proposal===
 
Fedora Blocker Bug Tracking is  web application that was designed to track release blocking bugs and related updates in Fedora releases currently under development. As the warnings state, it is currently in a state of heavy development. I am willing to implement new features, which will be helpful for Fedora QA.
 
===The need you believe it fulfills===
 
While the app itself already exists, there are many features which would be nice to implement. The needs of this proposal fulfills to provide features which required by community.
 
===Any relevant experience you have===
 
I'm passionate about technologies in general. I consider myself as an experienced Python developer. I am comfortable with the Python philosophy and I have created a bunch of application in Python. I'm familiar with revision control system, continues integration tools and web technologies. I have experience with  libraries which used in Blocker Bug Tracking before, such  Flask, SQLAlchemy and others and creating RESTful APIs.
 
===How you intend to implement your proposal===
 
First I think I need to get  familiar with the the domain, such as
 
- what is blocker bug
 
- what is a freeze exception?
 
- what is an update? how is it different from an NVR
 
- what does QA use test images and spins for?
 
- what is the difference between stable and updates-testing
 
At last close some tickets. This things must be completed before official start.
 
The proposal suggest to provide some new features which described in timetable.
 
===A rough timeline for your progress===
 
 
=====May 27 - June 17=====
 
Examine codebase,  bond with the community better and plan out finer details of the project, get familiar with domain.

* request spin via html or api
 
* get spin contents (updates) via api
 
* write a script that translates updates into NVRs
 
* allow updating of a spin with location and state via API & auth
