There's not much to elaborate. The general idea is "making new suites that people can upload to in the archive". The other option is to have apt-get/aptitude/etc have better ways of selecting things from experimental; so you say "Tag: gnome2.6" on all the stuff you upload for gnome 2.6, edit something in /etc/apt, and all is good. The upside is that that doesn't require any archive or infrastructure changes, so it's pretty easy. The downside is it doesn't let you have the same package built differently for "experimental/gnome2.6" and "experimental/kdeblah", should you want it. I'm not really convinced that's not a win anyway, though. > > > If so, then i will setup and maintain a powerpc autobuilder for it. > > Setting up a ppc autobuilder for experimental as-is wouldn't be any harder > > than in the above scenario, I would've thought. (Making autobuilding work for /multiple/ experimental suites requires even more changes) Cheers, aj -- Anthony Towns <firstname.lastname@example.org> <http://azure.humbug.org.au/~aj/> Don't assume I speak for anyone but myself.
