Subject RE: Package Repositories
Date Tue, 01 Dec 2015 08:47:09 GMT
We're going in a bit of a circle here.
My experience has been that the vast majority of users want the noredist version. If the consensus
is that the 'community created' packages should be/must be OSS (something which I think only
harms the project) then the download links and documentation should say so very clearly, state
what features are not in the OSS packages and state where the noredist packages can be found.

The documentation can simply state that they must use a third party repo for the noredist
featues with a link to the section in http://cloudstack.apache.org/downloads.html where those
links are.

Ideally the community packages would be noredist and then everyone is happy and ShapeBlue
don't need to maintain a repo.

I agree. I don't think that the community build packages should have noredist enabled. What
any other repos do is not our 'problem'.

Shall we ask for packages.cloudstack.org then?
