We just finished a dev-meeting to try and get a firmer grip on the timeline and the workload that stands between us and a release. Let me say a few words on the respective topics.
- Setting up the Buildserver
We agreed on aptosid as the operating system for the build-server. It is known to just work well with pyfll. We will swap it for siduction after the initial release.
- What is the state of the Installer-Frontend
The installer-frontend is mostly ready.The CSS needs to be done still as part of the Corporate Design.
- How will it play with the Backend
We need to work on the calls of the backend-routines. This will be done in 2-3 weeks.
- What is the state of the packages from fullstory that need be forked?
There is work to be done on the packages we need to fork and on the package lists. I will try to provide an estimate of the workload within a week.
- Repository ready for primetime?
The package repository is good to go.
We learned, that GoingEasy9 dug up 3 mirrors in the US of A. they are pull-mirrors with daily rsync runs. We need a mirror or 2 in Germany to start off. One of them needs to be a push-mirror. We can try Braunschweig or Chemnitz Universities or NetCologne (i have contacts there).
We agreed, we are still within our timeline for a release in 2011 (if sid is tame)
The log of the meeting is available in the Chili Wiki.
We also had a Core-Team Meeting on several topic tonight. The log is online .
