Are we planning to have a way to host source tarballs and/or rpms?
not sure of specific license requirements, but the vast majority of
projects seem to provide at least source tarballs. At the least, it
lets people get a specific version of the project(s) without digging
through git tags.
It's a MUST requirement for an open source project, really - gzip or
bzip tarballs, zip if appropriate of at least each release, going back
in time. Packages ideally end-up in the respective distros, until then
we SHOULD host them via ovirt.org
. (I reckon JARs & WARs may be
already compressed, if we're providing those we can probaly leave them
as .jar/.war files?)
Now the how of it is the trick. We can start doing it manually, create
a directory structur off ovirt.org
that makes sense, etc. But don't we
really want these generated as part of the release build process?
Then don't we want those builds + checksums pushed automagically to
the above ovit.org
directory? Then might we want to provide nightly
builds in some way?
So no rush on picking the how, except that the directory structure we
build first would ideally match the future structure. And probably
some other stuff.
