Re: Re: RFS: personalbackup
I am looking for a sponsor for my package "personalbackup".
IANADD, so I can't sponsor. But my comments, anyways:
You should not depend in postgresql, since that is just a transitional
package. Depend on an specific version, or on several.
In a related note, should you depend on postgresql at all? Does the
server *need* to be on the same machine as personalbackup? Maybe you
could just recommend: it or even suggest: it.
You are completely correct, it is better to "recommend" the package. I will change that.
You are programaticaly managing a configuration file in /etc. You
should look into using ucf, that already handles this.
I've had a look at ucf, but I do not think it fits my need (unless I have overlooked something).
I have a template file "/usr/share/doc/personalbackup/personalbackup.apache" and the parameter "webalias"
is being replaced in that template during postinst. Depending on the user's choose for apache/apache2
this file will be placed in '/etc/apache/conf.d/personalbackup' or '/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/personalbackup'
Now to detect that the user did (not) change the conf file, I check the md5sum of the content of the appropriate conf file 'except' for the Alias line.
And as far as I can see this is something ucf cannot handle...or am I wrong here?
Others might have more comments.
