LSCsoft@Debian packaging policy

-- ReinhardPrix - 06 Nov 2008: The following general guidelines for packaging were proposed on DASWG+LSCDebian on Oct 27, 2008, and adopted with 7 positive/neutral votes, and no objection

  1. The LSCsoft packages and versions to Debianize are given in the table https://www.lsc-group.phys.uwm.edu/daswg/download/repositories.html
  2. Debianized LSCsoft packages shall install into the same location as the corresponding CentOS5 packages: https://www.lsc-group.phys.uwm.edu/daswg/download/software/centos/5/
  3. Dependencies should (as far as possible) refer to the same versions as used in the CentOS5 package, eg. python2.4 instead of python2.5
  4. 3rd party Software shall be installed either into system-paths or into the LSCsoft location. Obviously, if using the native Debian-package, no re-packaging should be done, but if a different version has to be used (eg root-system-5.20), the system path might still be preferrable ... [no strong opinion here]
  5. if there are good arguments in favor of changing any of these install-paths, versions, dependencies etc, they should be brought forward to DASWG and apply to both CentOS5 and Debian, in order for 1)+2) not to be violated.

This is designed with the main priority of a uniform installation of LSCsoft across different clusters, irrespective of their underlying distribution. A cluster-user should NOT have to worry about unneccessary differences in installation.

-- ReinhardPrix - 06 Nov 2008: Proposed Amendmend 1: a reasonable exception to 2. is that copyright-notice and changelogs should go into /usr/share/doc.

LSCsoft@Lenny Repositories:

Local apt-repositories (browse packages). To install, add the following lines to your /etc/apt/sources.list:
  • for 'production' versions of the LSCsoft stack:
    deb http://n0.aei.uni-hannover.de/debian/ lenny contrib
  • for the 'proposes/testing' versions of the LSCsoft stack:
    deb http://n0.aei.uni-hannover.de/debian/ lenny-proposed contrib

The 'official' release repository is at UWM: deb http://www.lsc-group.phys.uwm.edu/daswg/download/software/debian/  lenny contrib

The source-packages can be installed by using deb-src instead of deb in the /etc/apt/sources.list file.

The corresponding CentOS5 packages are found here: http://www.lsc-group.phys.uwm.edu/daswg/download/software/centos/5/
