This is my #6 weekly report on my Summer of Code project 'Debsources as
You can view commits on alioth  or pull requests on github .
Kanban board with my per week tasks is available on trello .
This week I merged the work file-by-file views, worked on using the DB
to retrive license information of a specific file and started working on
the license statistics.
This work was included in PR#21  and it implemented the views for
searching a license of a file based on a checksum, or
package/version/path. When the user is searching for a checksum, we also
provide some statistics most notably the the most frequent licenses and
all the packages it appears in.
Retriece license info with DB
Instead of parsing the d/copyright file each time the user requests a
file we now use the DB to retrieve that information.
The statistics, DebSources will provide, are similar to the ones that
already exist . The goal here was to calculate statistics mainly for
the standard licenses  such as the overall number of files under each
license or per suite license statistcs along with some pie charts, bar
charts and historical trends.
Unfortunately I can't PR this work just yet since the DB schema and the
plugin for inserting the corresponding data is under review. You can
however track these changes in a branch .
Besides the work to merge the existing PRs I'll continue working on the
license statistics, finish the per suite statistics and the historical
I also picked up some tasks to create the online documentation (url
schema and api) of the copyright Blueprint as well as some other
templating work that was pending.
I hope to have enough time to research and work on exporting d/copyright
files in SPDX format.
Sorry for the late report and thanks for reading,
