When developing for SUSE Manager, it gets tiresome to setup clients in order to debug and test with clients.

The idea is to create a nice shell (with history, command completion, colors) that allows to simulate being a client.

The shell would accept commands like

  • quickstart <profile> <distro> Would create an activation key, some sample repos, erratas, a client, etc Profiles could be defined in a yaml file
  • register <activationkey>
  • check (like running rhn_check)
  • receiving jobs like package install or reboot would ask the user for the result of the operation before sending it back

The library could make use of Klaus thin wrapper over the XML-RPC protocol.

Looking for mad skills in:
