The webui is currently the poor cousin of the OBS parts even though it's wildly used. It's a pain in the ass to code for it as there is not a API for most things you need to do - and if there is it's cumbersome to use.

E.g. the webui needs to query /configuration.xml to find out the page title. This XML contains all configurable items about the OBS including scheduler splits, architectures, ...

The general idea of this project is to make the webui an engine of the API so we can map build.opensuse.org to api.opensuse.org/webui and be done with it. The webui engine then can make use of the API models in their beauty, also removing code duplication.

Looking for mad skills in:

ruby

      the idea is to finish integrating the webui below /webui2, then remove the need of the webui controllers and after that remount to /webui

      The webui is dead - long live the webui engine :)

      OK, not for so long actually, the end goal is having one rails app to rule them all.
