SoftwareHeritage provides an API to automatically trigger a request updating its archived version of a code (without visiting the webpage).

Within a Maneage'd project, the author will set their top repository URL in the 'metadata-git-repository' variable of their '[reproduce/analysis/config/metadata.conf' (for example see the Maneage paper's metadata.conf.

So it is easy to add an option to the high-level './project' script for requesting an update on SoftwareHeritage when this variable isn't empty, maybe something like:

./project --save-swh

I am a little busy right now, so I won't get to implement it immediately. But if anyone would like to give it a try, please go ahead. Otherwise we'll implement it some time in the near future...

Once implemented, public projects (after submission to arXiv) can call it immediately with a 'git push' like this:

git push && ./project --save-swh

This API was introduced to me by Morane Gruenpeter (Metadata specialist at SoftwareHeritage). Thanks Morane, this is a great feature ;-)!
