             Summary: [GSoC] Twitter card integration (and other social tags) in Apache Bloodhound
                 Key: COMDEV-85
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COMDEV-85
             Project: Community Development
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Branko Čibej


Apache Bloodhound is a software development collaboration tool, including issue tracking,
wiki and repository browsing (see: http://bloodhound.apache.org). Bloodhound extends Trac
(http://trac.edgewall.org/) with multiple product support, advanced search functionality,
ticket relations, a simpler installer and sleeker user interface. Apache Bloodhound recently
graduated from the Apache Incubator as a stand-alone Apache project. 

Problem: 

Many big open source projects have issue trackers built on Trac, the same technology Apache
Bloodhound is built on. We're hoping to make it easier for people to refer to objects like
tickets, milestones, versions or whole products in a meaningful way.

Proposed solution: 

One approach to this is to provide ​Twitter card integration (http://dev.twitter.com/docs/cards)
for a richer experience. In addition ​Facebook Meta Tags (http://davidwalsh.name/facebook-meta-tags)
could be helpful. Google Plus ​relies on schema.org metatags, which we may also want to
conform to (http://support.google.com/webmasters/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=1211158).

Skills needed: 

Bloodhound and Trac are written in Python, so a moderate dose of Python programing skills
are required.
