Forum OpenACS Development: Re: Awesome 5.0 SW Install - Almost Works!
Also, beware that the repository currently sits on one of our development servers, and is only current as of that date!
I'm in the process of generalizing and migrating the script to build the repository of APM files to openacs.org.
Next step: up2date for OpenACS :)
http://openacs.org/bugtracker/openacs/bug?bug%5fnumber=1103 is filed under ACS Admin.
Wow! Looks like .LRN and 5.0 bugs are _really_ pouring in...
Once again I have to say that the stuff Lars & Co. have added to 5.0 is _awesome_! Thanks guys (and gals)! Stand up and take a bow!
I know there are lots of other contributors, but I keep bumping into Lars.
For released stuff, it only needs to be built once the release is ... released.
For HEAD version, it should be rebuilt every night.
I haven't bothered too much with the code to building the repository yet, since we can always improve on that after the release is out, it's only going to sit on openacs.org.
The code to build the repository is in acs-admin/www/apm/build-repository.tcl - it's not linked from the UI, since it should generally only be run on openacs.org. If you want to host your own package repository, though, you can.
I've put up a repository for HEAD at http://openacs.org/repository/5-0/manifest.xml.
I haven't configured it to automatically rebuild, so the HEAD packages will stay current as of about 1 hour ago until we release 5.0.
