Description Andrew Dunbar 2011-03-01 12:34:16 UTC
Perhaps this feature should be filed against the website but I couldn't find one.

The downloads page at has lots of useful information but it is all clumped together in an arbitrary order.

It would be nice to turn this page into a sortable table as is used on some Wikipedia articles where a user can can choose to sort the data by date/time, by project, or by language.

That is a static page (non wiki) so would need to find a script to do it nicely. Probably might be easier if so desired to instead of having that auto generated page, have a bot output the details onto a wiki.
Comment 2 Andrew Dunbar 2011-03-01 12:39:28 UTC
Is the code which creates this page included in the source repository? I might take a look at it.
Comment 3 Andre Klapper 2012-11-09 20:33:52 UTC
Andrew: See for the codebase.

Looking at the repo mentioned (operations/dumps), I'm not sure backup-index.html comes from there (cf. <>).

This bug may be a dependency of bug 52055. Ariel would know for sure.
Comment 5 Ariel T. Glenn 2014-03-25 17:29:23 UTC
I have added a link to 'sorted by wiki name' which will show up in a few hours on our servers.  Is this sufficient for your needs?
Comment 6 MZMcBride 2014-03-26 02:19:29 UTC
I'd still personally prefer a sortable table. :-)  If we can point to a specific code repo, I think making this index page a single HTML file that's a sortable table would be a fairly good programming exercise for a beginning programmer (i.e., could use the "easy" keyword).
Comment 7 Ariel T. Glenn 2014-03-26 05:54:44 UTC
As long as sortable doesn't mean "needs javascript" I'm fine with that, except that I would prefer css be used to make the layout more table-like rather than usin actual html tables.

See modules/snapshot/files/dumps/templates/progress.html
in the operations puppet git repo if you know someone interested.  In the meantime I'm going to leave this change in place, since it does give a second sort order for those who wanted it.
