[Pkg-opennebula-devel] Progress for OpenNebula 3.8

I've been digging through the mailing-list archives and after filtering
the spam locally, I finally was able to spot interesting discussions.

I don't know if Martin is still interested, but I'll try my luck anyway.

Has there been any public push of the packaging sources for 3.8.5 ?

I noticed the commits by Jaime on the experimental branch that were
later reverted (so as to keep experimental on 3.6 only ?), but nothing

And AFAICS, the 3.8.5 package tarball from opennebula didn't contain the
package sources, only the binary packages.

Any clue, anyone (if you're still alive ;)

Best regards,

We noted that some files are missing from the install files since they are packaged elsewhere. Damien suggested to use some kind of exclude list for these files. Jaime plans to commit the script to the repository.

That can be an issue when the OpenNebula 3.8 package for squeeze does not work with a packages it depends on in Wheezy due to package renames (libruby-something => ruby-something) or versioning conflicts.
