REVU permissions and updates
 
Hi!

First, I was looking at REVU and noticed that I am logged in as
"statik (Contributor)", and I have the ability to comment on packages
but it seems like other folks probably have an Advocate button. Since
I first started using REVU before I was a member of MOTU, I am
wondering whether my permissions are cached somehow on the REVU
system. Is there an admin of the REVU system that could assist me?

Second, I see that REVU does not yet have support for source format
3.0 packages. Is anyone already working on adding this support? It's a
bit premature for me to offer to work on it, but I've (slowly) started
setting up a development instance and reading through the code to try
and understand how much work would be involved.

You should now have the ability to advocate packages on REVU.

I know I saw someone working on getting this working the other day,
but I have no clue what the current status is.

For the seocn point, it required a dpkg backport - as REVU runs on a
sparc box, it's a little hard to upgrade it to a recent release of
Ubuntu.
I've compiled the backport from the ~launchpad PPA but have yet to test
it properly to make sure that I don't blow things up inadvertently :)

Thanks,
Andrew

Awesome, thanks for working on it. If a provider somewhere were to
offer free hosting on a better supported architecture, is that
something you would be interested in?

I'm interested in a solution that doesn't result in work for me :P. I guess
that's certainly one of the reasons why REVU is still running on spooky :).

Cheers,
Stefan.

If there is interest in moving to another host, I'd have no problem
with migrating the stuff (DB, files, necessary configuration).
