people.d.o to help free java
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
kaffe is a free (GPL) java development kit and is packaged in
Debian. Ean Schuessler <firstname.lastname@example.org>, Adam Heath <email@example.com>,
and I are close to upstream and try to help them the best we can.
I made a cronjob on people.d.o that launch make and here is the
$ ssh avdyk@people cat public_html/kaffe/snapshot/Makefile
CURRENT_DATE = $(shell date +'%Y%m%d')
TARBALL_TO_REMOVE = $(shell ls kaffe*.tar.gz)
cd kaffe ; cvs -q -z9 update -C -d
tar zcf kaffe-snapshot-$(CURRENT_DATE).tar.gz \
--exclude CVS --exclude .cvsignore kaffe
The aim, as you can read in the Makefile, is to make daily snapshots of
kaffe. I'm not sure it'll help *only* *our* users, it can also help
other users from other distribs (like Gentoo), or simply some who wants
to try the latest kaffe CVS HEAD in one single tarball... that's why I'm
I'm sure cvs update and doing a tarball will not consume to much energy
on gluck but maybe it can consume bandwidth.
Also, note that I created a new Alioth project (pkg-kaffe) and I plan to
move the Makefile and the cronjob there (until the kaffe project will be
able to provide daily snapshots).
So, if it's a bad use of the Debian machine, tell me and I'll remove it
as soon as possible.
The result is available here:
