Subject [jira] Updated: (CASSANDRA-786) RPM Packages
Date Tue, 03 Aug 2010 21:35:19 GMT


Nick Bailey updated CASSANDRA-786:

    Attachment: apache-cassandra.spec

Some changes to the last attached spec file:
 * I think the package name should be apache-cassandra as it differentiates an rpm from something
that might be provided by Riptano or similar.
 * Version updated to 0.70
 * The package ant-nodeps is a dependency
 * The build step should perform ant clean and indicate the release flag in order for the
jar to build correctly.
 * I modified how configuration is handled. The package installs the basic configuration at
/usr/share/cassandra/default.conf and /etc/cassandra/default.conf.  Then alternatives are
set up to point /etc/cassandra/conf here with a priority of 0.  This allows deployment specific
packages to install a custom alternative with a higher priority.
 * The spec file should default to using the in conf.
 * Ticket CASSANDRA-1347 addresses making not actually perform jvm configuration.
 This allows someone to do all configuration by using an alternative /etc/hadoop/conf directory.
 * Modified the log files and conf files to give read access to the world.

> RPM packages (and debs of course) would be nice,especially now that cassandra is maturing
and gaining more interest.
> Lowering the threshold for getting cassandra running and getting started is also important.
> I think the RabbitMQ project has an admirable "Download and install" experience, not
to mention the rather cute "2 min guarantee". Definitely a good inspiration.
> I've been studying Cloudera's Hadoop packages, which are very nice, and really appreciate
the separate packages for configuration.
> This allows easy deployment of node configuration to a cluster.
> I'll have a spec file for building RHEL5 / CentOS packages ready for review and attached
here in a bit.
