Alex Karasulu updated DIRSERVER-749:
------------------------------------

    Affects Version/s:     (was: 1.0-RC4)
                       1.5.0
                       1.0.1
        Fix Version/s:     (was: 1.0.1)
                           (was: 1.5.0)
                       1.0.2
                       1.5.1

Again I'm really sorry to be pushing this off yet again to another release but I looked at
the attachments and they're a bit out of date.  Unless you can get me a patch to fix these
issues in the now building 1.0 branch I'll have to engage you later after 1.0.2 is out. 

Please bear with us.  I know this must be frustrating.  I think for 1.0.2 we really have to
grapple with all these outstanding issues that have been pushed back.

> The apacheds RPM has several issues that prevent it from running out of the box:
> * the init script fails to run because APACHEDS_USER is set to $USER, which is not defined
at boot time
> * the init script fails to run bevause JAVA_HOME is not defined
> * the init script it is not registered to the init subsystem with chkconfig or similar
> * the config files are not marked as such, causing them to be silently overwritten when
one upgrades the RPM
> * the RPM filename is not conform conventions: ${name}-${version}-${release}.${arch}.rpm
> * the location of the files (/usr/local/apacheds-1.0_RC4) is version dependent, making
upgrades cumbsome. The admin has to relocate the partitions and config files on every updgrade.
> * the sources and docs are included in the rpm, even though they are not necessary for
operation.
> The RPM build mechanism for apacheds also has some issues:
> * runs rpmbuild as root, which is frowned upon by RPM gurus for security and safety reasons.
> * the generated src.rpm is not self contained, ie. one cannot do a 'rpmbuild --rebuild'
with it. 
> * the sudo mechanism is totally unnecessary
