I made some progress.
I have builds for the following more or less ready:
It's building and I am trying to refine the process a bit. So it might break in between [aka WIP]. I'm just adding this as a disclaimer.
Would you mind testing my builds? :) So far, I only tested lucid briefly (and ran into the xulrunner issue, which I think I have auto-fixed now). Besides I just started it up, created a DB and entered some docs into it.
I'm trying to figure out how to setup more automated testing. "make check" always requires the source tree to be present, I'd like "make check" against my installed binaries. I saw the "verify installation" in Futon – something like that for the command line so I can iterate on these builds and trigger a "test this" in a continuous integration setup. Building is part of it, but since building a binary and installing it are two separate steps I want to ensure that the second step also works. I am still trying to wrap my head around a setup where I can maybe knife up a few instances in THE CLOUD, install my package, run its test-suite and confirm.
