Detailed Description

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Darkserver

Benefit to Fedora

To enable developer tools to identify exact package builds from which process images (e.g. core dumps) come. This can enable their analysis, debugging profiling, by finding out where the rpm / elf / dwarf files may be found, so they can download them. (This is even better than abrt-action-install-debuginfo-to-abrt-cache because that apparently cannot query files no longer indexed by repodata.)

Scope

How To Test

Devel instance URL: http://darkserver01.dev.fedoraproject.org/darkserver/

User Experience

This is a developer service and won't affect end users except in a indirect way by improving the use of tools.

Dependencies

Infrastructure team needs to host the service. Kevin Fenzi is working with Kushal Das on this already.

Contingency Plan

The service simply won't exist.
