Querying user activity

Mar 24, 2014 | categories: fedmsg, fedora, datagrepper View Comments

In July, I wrote about some tools you can use to query Fedora package history. This post is just to point out that you can use the same approach to query user history. (It is the same data source that we use in Fedora Badges queries -- it also comes with a nice HTML output). Here's some example output from the console:

The tool isn't packaged at all, but here's the script if you'd like to copy and use it:
