I do some work on the Solaris things on pkgsrc. I am still wondering if
I break something with my changes or if it just helps to advance pkgsrc.
What about the other plattforms, other architectures, etc?

Joerg has made a great job on the pbulk framework and it's writing
wonderfull reports. Some of the pkgsrc-bulk@ posters use this framework
frequently (except me).

Having some time during the weekend, I decided to play around with it
and wrote a small perl thing that imported the data from some reports in
a sqlite db. I thought about a small webinterface and unfortunatelly the
weekend was over....

So far you can only see a list of pkgrsrc packages (pkg report) and if
you click on the 'platform report' you'll see a list of some of the
pbulk reports on the different OS.

What I would like to add:
  - a "detail" button with a short summary if something has failed.
    pbulk has some more information like: PKG_SKIP_REASON,

What do you think. Is such an overview something useful?


P.S.: be patient - this is just a small webserver :) and it's
experimental only.
