Forum OpenACS Improvement Proposals (TIPs): TIP 118 (proposed): have full openacs tarballs include a .info file similar to .info files of packages

Request notifications

Being one of many people who want to create packages of openacs offerings, I'd also like an easy way to include what openacs desires as a description; presently my script hardwires it.

Additionally I'd like fields that tell me what version I'm packaging (also hardwired).

Info I also need which I can't presume to hardwire would be items like xotcl and tcllib, postgres/oracle, aolserver (plus which version thereof), database driver (nspostgres/nsoracle) which are needed and hopefully which I can add directly to the depends line of the packaging control file.

The main purpose is so that openacs leadership has an easy way of giving me this required information.
