Subject: perl5.test-smoke.org: Permit HTTP calls with search conditions in URL
This is a feature request for the interface at http://perl5.test-smoke.org/search. Summary: Enable users to construct HTTP calls to include search conditions in the URL. Current State: People who, like myself, make heavy use of the Search capabilities of the CoreSmoke DB have to manually construct the searches via a series of drop-down boxes -- and AFAICT have no way of saving those searches for future use. Today, for example, I noticed at Tony Cook's http://perl.develop-help.com that Perl 5 blead was failing to compile on NetBSD 8.0 using g++ as the compiler. This was not entirely surprising, since until Carlos Guevara recently installed a NetBSD 8.0 smoke-testing rig, we had no information whatsoever on this OS/OS-version/C-compiler combination. To look at all the reports for this 3-way combination, I went to http://perl5.test-smoke.org/search and had to enter data in 3 separate drop-down boxes (see screenshot attached). Normally, my next step would be to go to perl5-porters (either mailing list or IRC) and ask if anyone could debug this build failure. To do so, rather than having to coach someone through those 3 drop-down boxes, I'd rather give them a URL which would make the API call directly -- as I presume that the website is doing behind the scenes. Something along the lines of: http://perl5.test-smoke.org/search?os=netbsd&osversion=8.0&cc=g++ (an API call which *currently* returns the main Search page :-) ) When someone has fixed the problem and pushed a branch for smoking, I could simply re-call that URL in my browser to verify the results. Two additional notes: 1. I have several other RT tickets open for Test-Smoke. Given that this one is a feature request, I would ask that you prioritize the other tickets. 2. My impression is that the source code for perl5.test-smoke.org is not public. If I'm wrong and if this feature request should be filed elsewhere, please redirect me. Thank you very much. Jim Keenan
