Uploading all of OpenStack kilo to backports
Just a few days after the release of OpenStack Kilo on the 30th of April
2015 (yes, just 5 days after Jessie...), all of the packages reached Sid
today, with the last bit approved.
Since the DSA would like to use OpenStack Kilo for deploying and
offering VMs to DDs, and because I don't feel right to use a private
repository for providing Jessie backports of OpenStack, I decided to
upload all of Kilo in the official Jessie backports.
What will happen, is that we're going to upload all of the packages for
which the version was bumped in Sid, or which are not in Jessie at all,
in this QA page:
Note this is excluding TripleO (python-os-*-config packages), Tuskar,
and probably some more experimental / less used projects like Sahara,
Murano and more, but mostly, we're planning to upload everything else.
Basically, we want "apt-get install openstack-toaster" to install
everything backported from Sid, so that a basic OpenStack Kilo cloud can
be deployed using the jessie-backports repository.
That's a lot of packages, and a lot of work. But unlike maintaining all
in Sid, I wont be the only one working on the backports. Zobel (from the
DSA team) already started doing the backport work. So far, he rebuilt
all of the python-xstatic-* files. Also, maintaining OpenStack in Debian
is my full-time job, so I believe I have enough time to maintain it all
(help is of course always welcome though...).
On my side, I have already uploaded a few key dependencies not directly
maintained within the OpenStack packaging group (six, eventlet, and
probably more in a few minutes...).
