Forum OpenACS Development: Response to AOLserver/OpenASC packages

Posted by Andrew Piskorski on
Matt, a standard source tree to build all OpenACS software like you
suggest would totally rock.

For example, I personally love Debian packages and apt-get, but I
won't use them for anything OpenACS related - I'm responsible for
using many of the same tools on Solaris as well, so I'd rather always
install from sources so my procedures can be the same on both
platforms.  And being able to use a canonical "OpenACS and related
necessary stuff" source tree rather than rolling my own all the time
(which is what I do now) sounds very nice.

And of course, using your tree to then generate packages for multiple
platforms would make it an even more valuable resource.
