the Copr client part II

I spent this week finishing up the copr client. It now supports all the functionality that the Copr TG API supports. It’s not much, but it’s a starting point.

I spent a lot of time trying to understand the way repoze.who works and the authentication plugins that we’re using for the python-fedora FAS authentication plugin. I finally understood it, I think… The Fedora client library didn’t support basic HTTP Authentication for TG2 apps so I had to figure out how to integrate that into our authentication plugin. It was quite fun all in all, repoze.who has a very interesting way of doing authentication and writing wsgi middleware is always exciting ;). This patch will hopefully go upstream to python-fedora now.

This next week I’ll probably start working on the buildsystem part of Copr. There are a lot of new things to learn there.
