I want to build a web-based tool to help people in Mozilla answer the question “Who Owns What?” Questions like: who’s in charge of Layout? Who runs Persona? Who do I talk to about the Thunderbird feed reader?
The data source would be the Module Owners list, which was carefully designed to be machine-readable in its source format. Compared to most databases, it’s a very small amount of data indeed.
The UI would, I hope, be a single search box, which would return one or more complete entries from the list which had a textual match, with the match highlighted.
This seems to me like it’s a very standard database-backed website, of the type that people build every day. I’m sure there are tools and frameworks out there which will do much of the heavy lifting for me, including a decent search system with some sort of intelligence to it.
Can the Mozilla community tell me what I should be using? An install of this software will need to be supported by Mozilla IT. Is Bedrock the right tool for the job?
User interface input also welcomed.
