So I went down into the living room again a 1:00 in the morning and looked to work on something easy. I had a rough "look the owner of a package up by its name using the bugzilla data in the pgkdb" script lying around at which I took a closer look again -- I started to write it some weeks ago, because I got more and more annoyed when people posted mails like "the following 42 packages needs to be rebuild because
Thus I improved and polished that script (nearly 250 lines in total now, including license and comments :-/) and upload it to the wiki today, as it's likely useful for other Fedorians as well. You can find it on the UsefulScripts page (which, btw, needs a cleanup afaics) now.
Here is a example how it can be used:
$ ./fedoradev-pkgowners ntfs-3g enigma gnome-desktop \It likely has still some bugs in it as I wrote big parts of it in the middle of the night (which is really unusual for me -- I'm not one of those that works in the night normally), but it's a start and hopefully useful for others as well.
kdebase | sort | column -t
$ echo "ntfs-3g enigma gnome-desktop kdebase" | ./fedoradev-pkgowners \
--fasfile fasdata --email --pkgdbfile tmp/bugzilla | sort | column -t
rstrode gnome-desktop rstrode_[AT]_redhat.com
spot ntfs-3g tcallawa_[AT]_redhat.com
than kdebase than_[AT]_redhat.com
thl enigma fedora_[AT]_leemhuis.info
Thinking about it: wouldn't it make sense to put this and some of the other scripts into a fedoradevtools package? That would make it easier for people to get this and similar scripts and keeping them up2date. The idea is similar to the concept from rpmdevtools (which IMHO is a rea success), but putting fedora-specific things into that package seems wrong to me.
