Re: [OpenDaylight Discuss] Hydrogen distributions cleaning

Andrew Grimberg

Speaking as a sysadmin I honestly like RPMs as they make installing and
managing software much easier on systems.

Speaking as someone that helped get the Hydrogen RPMs packaged, doing
this right is extremely time consuming and difficult. Doing it right in
a way that would allow the packages into EPEL or even a core Fedora / EL
distro is outright near impossible because of all the dependencies that
we would end up having to package separately that we ourselves don't
actually produce. This right here is the real sticking point. Policies
for EPEL and such essentially get to the point where somewhere in the
chain the dependencies were actually built and packaged. Wrapping all
the dependencies into one giant RPM (like we did for Hydrogen) would
pretty much get the package snubbed, maybe laughed at too ;)

Cool about docker!

Should we be trying to push on RPMs or find somebody that can help or have
we decided that it's not that important?

Out of curiosity, are we planning to create new Helium (and beyond) Docker
and RPM code?

Hi everybody,

As per TSC discussion, this is to inform everybody that in a month from
now (effective Monday Nov 24th 00:00 UTC) we will be:

- Discontinuing old Hydrogen distributions (Base, Service Provider,
Virtualization) creation
- Removing old Hydrogen distribution code
(integration/distributions/base, integration/distributions/serviceprovider,
integration/distributions/virtualization) from master and stable/helium

In addition we are already working on (will be effective in the next 1-2

- Discontinuing old Hydrogen docker (Base, Service Provider,
Virtualization) creation, it is being replaced by Karaf based docker
- Removing old Hydrogen docker code (integration/packaging/docker/base,
integration/packaging/docker/virtualization) from master and stable/helium
- Cleaning old Hydrogen RPM code (under integration/packaging/rpm) from
master and stable/helium branches

So if anyone has any issue with any of the above, please speak up.
