There have been a lot of good requests for cobbler/koan features (and
bugfixes) lately, so I thought I would share the current list as I have it.
If you have any other requests, now would be a good time to share
them. This is the (basically) the same TODO file that's in source
cobbler TODO list
now with 1-5 priority ratings
2 - better documentation (particularly online articles)
more new thoughts:
1 - re-support repo add taking http:// urls, which will use
1 - import over http://, ftp:// in addition to existing file and
rsync:// and ssh://
1 - better support for import from DVD (with cleaner imported names)
5 - "check" should check if services (esp httpd) are started
3 - allow rsync without ssh option
5 - "cobbler add" should be distinguished from "edit" so as to not
5 - GTK (or Web) UI for Cobbler ?
5 - have -v or --version
3 - cobbler system names (indeed, everything) should be case insensitive.
1 - enable more virtualization types in koan
4 - (more of a koan item) LVM support
5 - remove the cobbler_msg logic since i18n isn't likely
5 - make the multiple-bootloader system more plugin oriented to allow
for alternative bootloaders (not neccessarily kickstart related)
to be added. (Low priority)
4 - someone suggested looking at OMAPI for DHCP management
3 - cobbler report with a random parameter produces no output
that should be an error... is that still the case?
3 - no logrotate or cleanup for /var/log/cobbler (kickstart tracking)
4 - cobbler import should attach "tree" to distro, not profile
One other item not on this list is to move source control over to git...
If I had a number #1 thing I want to fix soon it's the DVD import use
case. Setting up cobbler using a DVD image (instead of an rsync
mirror) deserves to be really really easy, so I will probably tackle
that for the next release.
