Boxes: Populate libosinfo database

completed by: Mateusz K.

mentors: zeenix, Marc-André Lureau

  • Boxes relies on libosinfo for information on various operating systems information, including detection of operating systems given an installation media. Libosinfo maintains its database in the form of XML files. Currently this database is very much incomplete and useful information is limited to a handful of operating systems and distributions. The task would be to add/complete this information.
  • Expected results: Add/complete information of all Windows and Mac operating systems and all versions of Fedora, Suse, Ubuntu and Debian.
  • Requirements: Familiarity with XML, libosinfo, Git
