Subject Re: Reg Development of Pip package for Apache Airavata installation
Date Mon, 22 May 2017 15:58:05 GMT

Thank you for the great interest shown in this regard.I will write a tech spec and share the
document with you by the end of 23rd,the Tuesday.

@Randy, Is it okay if I first develop the package for Mac Users so that you can start testing
and contribute valuable comments over the same while I work on Linux automation?

@Marcus, I will try to get hold of some possible names for the package.Can we go with the
name airavata-pga-install for the dev purposes?I believe once we have a approved version,
we can be more precise and try to figure out a name for the package which can be shared to
the community.Please let me know your comments over this.

Thank you

I would like to extend the script to install the same on ubuntu systems.Since I have placed
all the necessary configurations (like apache server configs, php, mcrypt, pga, mysql) in
a resources.xml file, I believe that a simple extension for the xml file would do the job
in ubuntu systems as well where systems choose ubuntu related configurations and commands.
