      Description

      Admin users when testing Apps can add a "pending apps" plugin repository URL to IGB.

      That URL is:

      https://dev-appstore-5.bioviz.org/obr/pending_releases

      This can be very useful because it allows an admin user to test a new App very easily. They can just add the repository to IGB and try out the new App.

      However, currently if a user visits the above URL in their browser, they will get a "page not found" (404) error.

      This is because we currently only support an endpoint for the "repository.xml" file, accessed via a URL that looks like

      https://dev-appstore-5.bioviz.org/obr/pending_releases/repository.xml

      We should implement a new page/path that will show the user something useful if they visit the repository URL:

      https://dev-appstore-5.bioviz.org/obr/pending_releases

      For this task, implement a "stub page" that contains instructions on how to add the App Store to IGB. See related issue for text.

      Also, include a link to the repository.xml file in the page.

      Note that this task is mainly to create the page. A subsequent Jira user story will cover more in-depth design.

            Issue:
            To provide repository.xml url to the user when user visits respository url in browser

            Description:
            When a user visits obr for pending releases, user receives Page Not Found exception as the link does not contain repository.xml path. This ticket will redirect user to HTML page which will contain the repository.xml url which can be clicked to open repository.xml

            Solution:
            When a user visits repository url from browser for the pending releases, redirect user to a page with the link for repository.xml page

            Code and functionality are both fine! For next step:

            • please rebase on master branch (there have been a few merges since branch was made)
            • submit PR

            Note for testers: Just in case there is any confusion: by "redirect" we mean: "provide a link to repository.xml" not "URL redirection" as in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/URL_redirection
