Package system status report (and developer documentation)

June 6th, 2005 by Chris Buechler

Over the past few days a lot of work on the package system has taken place. Major changes include:

  • Service manager from Scott.
  • XMLRPC for package information
  • Smarter installation and deinstallation utilities
  • Various performance improvements, code cleanups, and bugfixes.

Although we’ve tried to keep breakage to a minimum, look for issues with the new package code (and the packages themselves) in the next few versions. Those running the ro wrapsoekris image may be the most heavily impacted by this update. Be sure to file tickets for anything you spot at our bug tracker.

Also, we have begun to create developer documentation with robodoc. You can find the most recent set here.

Please don’t post technical questions or off-topic comments. It is far more likely that your questions and concerns will be addressed effectively through one of our support channels.
