Subject Re: [GitHub] cloudstack pull request: Remove AWS api bridge
Date Fri, 21 Nov 2014 15:39:07 GMT
It would be interesting to have usage stats on the AWS cloud bridge.
It is very hard to get working right correctly (especially when compared to
something like ec2stack) so I'd be very surprised if:

- There were a large number of users
- They had upgrade path issues

I think the idea of chunking out awsapi in its own repo has some merit,
even though it will most likely ending up being bitrot.

As far as packaging is concerned, this PR still builds packages correctly
for debian, someone should do a test build for RPM packages (i did the spec
changes but didn't build).
