Subject [DISCUSS] CloudStack packages upstream initiative
Date Thu, 22 Feb 2018 15:41:15 GMT

I've been trying to engage with people from upstream distributions (CentOS, Fedora, Debian
etc) to get our free/oss packages published focusing on LTS releases. The noredist/non-oss
packages most likely are not going to be supported due to licensing issues by these distros
so they will continue to be supported by 3rd parties.

The larger goals are to make it easier for users to install CloudStack and for the project
to be able to reach a wider people-base and grow our community.

This year's FOSDEM, I met a couple of people along with Daan to discuss this and we've made
some progress in this regard. The purpose of this thread is to engage with others who may
be interested and may help us do this.

Some of us have been participating and have been accepted into CentOS's CloudSIG group, our
first goal is to understand their processes, tooling, and come up with first set of free/oss
rpm packages for CentOS and then understand how we can help get them published.

I'm trying to aim the same for Debian (Ubuntu?), Fedora and if you've any pointers/advice
for me that would be great!

All interested people are free to join me in the CloudSIG meetings that will happen weekly
on Thursday on #centos-devel channel in Freenode at 1500UTC. The first meeting was held today,
here are some useful links:
