Subject Re: Cloudstack Repackaging / Distro support
Date Tue, 12 May 2015 16:42:27 GMT
Hi Rafael,

There is a ticket for fedora packaging: CLOUDSTACK-8163 I have sent patches
with that issue ID. There are quite a lot of things to do...
Are you working on the management server packaging?
Why does the management service have to start as a separate service? It
could be just a webapp under tomcat.

Basically what are the advantages of having a reverse proxy in front of
tomcat? Is httpd/nginx more secure than tomcat?

Best regards,
