Not sure about the above statement. In general if anything sometimes
builds get kept longer than intended.
The build is presumably there, but I seem to be getting intermittent
failures to connect to the URL, which makes it appear to have disappeared.
Try to figure out why you are not getting mailers. Perhaps if you have
another email you could try.
OK, but mail notification is a minor problem. I get the URL immediately
from the web site upon submitting the job, and do not need the mail for
that. The more serious problem is failure to connect to that URL. The
mail would serve only to verify that the job ran and to report success
or failure, independent of connection to the URL.
Is there any obvious reason why not to include
all of octave3.2, r-base-core, and maxima?
Not sure what you ask here and so I assume you are talking about
package lists. If the said packages are not in a list and they are in
the main archive, then you can just add them on --packages .
That is what I meant. I was asking because I do not know the intent,
capabilities, and constraints of the on-line builder, other than what I
can infer from trial and error, and so I did not know whether this was a
reasonable goal. I'm not sure exactly what you mean by the "main
archive". Using the online debian package search, they seem to be in a
standard-looking directory. I see now that octave works, and I think the
other packages were in the same place. There must be some kind of size
constraint, but I presume that is pretty big.
believe they would be valuable in a given package list, then you could
file a bug report.
No, this is just for a custom build. Unless you want to add a
scientific and engineering version.
