Attaching meta-data to bosh releases to ease discovery ?


Guillaume Berche
 

Hi,

I'm wondering whether there are plans to add meta-data to bosh release
manifest, as to support better discoverability of bosh releases.

The bosh hub is providing a great one shop place to find bosh releases, and
it would be great to have it augmented with meta-data / classification.

This meta-data could be external to the release (e.g. in bosh-hub) or
embedded in the release similar to juju charms meta-data [1] or most
package manager provide (yum, apt ...) to attach meta-data to packages.

I drafted possible meta-data / classification into [2] as to start the
discussion.

Thanks in advance,

Guillaume.
