Feature Request: Upload from URL

Bug #174798 reported by Sidnei da Silva on 2007-12-08
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Launchpad itself

Bug Description

Here's a feature request: One of our projects puts builds in a publicly accessible location. When making a release, we have to do 3 steps:

 - Download the file from the public location
 - Rename it
 - Upload it to Launchpad

It would be really great if we could reduce this to:

 - Provide Launchpad the public URL and an (optional) final filename, maybe with an (optional) MD5 checksum
 - Launchpad would fetch the URL itself and send out a notification if it successfully fetched the URL.

(The equivalent for bug attachments was bug 32772.)

Note this is *not* the same as #124891, where Launchpad would just use the provided URL as-is. This is about Lauchpad sucking the URL into the librarian and serving the file itself.

It think this is a good idea, and one that can work in conjunction with the product-release-finder.

Changed in launchpad-registry:
importance: Undecided → Low
status: New → Triaged
