Hi there, I want a RPM repository/proxy/pull-through-cache. If written in a higher order language : one of the following (in descending order of preference) : * Elixir * Java * Erlang * Python * Node * Ruby Otherwise a configured server (as bundled by Centos/RedHat) which can be * Nginx or * Lighttpd I don't want it written in any of the following: * Apache/PHP * .Net * Perl Constraints: * It will listen on a configurable ipv4 port. * It will have configurable storage and cache directory locations * It will be possible to build into a Centos 6.7 derived docker image * Authentication is optional - but update should only be via the local host - remote network clients should be provided a read-only API * Whatever code you write will be under the Apache license. I'm guessing this will take about 12 hours work for someone.

A little bit about Hammer Software: We are a shop specializing in software development (system integration, telecom, and networking), telecom, and security/surveillance support. We would prefer to find someone that work out well for a long term partnership, so I would prefer someone that has a larger skillset. You don't have to be perfect, but you should be able to solve the problems with a minimum amount of help. This will be the first rev of the tool. Our client needs it to query a cloud instance of Jira Software (https://xxxxxx.atlassian.net/) with projects set up in Scrum Software Development mode. You must have your own access to a cloud instance of Jira Software. (They have 30 day free trials available.) At this point, I don't care if it's a command line tool (Mac or Linux), desktop gui (must run on OSX El Capitan), or a website that I can host on my own Linux servers (PHP, Python, or perl). What it must do: - provide a weekly report What must be on the weekly report: - show brief (one line) updates on any tickets with 'highest' or 'higher' priority in a top 10 format by developer - should not crash and burn if there are less than 10 tickets matching this - if a given developer does not have any tickets, they should not be listed - should list developer name (first and last name), ticket #, priority as a heading before giving the one line description - should list date issue was created - should list date of last activity - should only consider activity on subtasks, stories and bugs for commits - subtasks, stories, bugs and epics should be considered if they're closed or created, or a status changes from todo to in progress or in progress to done Please detail what language and environment you will use to solve the problem and how soon I should expect a solution from you. Please feel free to ask any questions you need answered to bid on this project.
