Hi Joe,

I haven't worked in the Fez space for a while now, but I wrote an extension and stand-alone Java application to produce checksum reports from Fedora back in August 2008. Details and patches (which are no doubt now woefully out-of-date) are here:

Hi all,

(I initially sent this to the Fez userís list, but Iím also interested in hearing from developers.)

Has anyone done any work on regular reports for fez/fedora (whether as part of fez or using other tools)?† Here are some examples:

†††††††† report of security set on objects (e.g. whether it inherits security from parent, who can see it, edit it, etc.)

†††††††† list of work added or amended by a specific user between specific dates

†††††††† count and list of objects added between specific dates

†††††††† report of broken urls.†

So far we have just done ad hoc reporting (using various combinations of SQL, perl, xslt, and php), at times using the fez database and at other times having to pull data from fedora.† Ideally, we would like a way for at least some of these reports to be run by non-technical staff.† Does anyone have any experience with this or ideas about it?
