  • packaging & repository
    • Vagrant's packaging class in PDX in Nov ? - Who will attend, or help plan?
    • "mini-dinstall would be most useful for developers making experimental releases and cvs builds, reprepro would be best for standard archive format for our released packages, and our hand-rolled one could be as good as reprepro, but more flexible ... but it would require writing it."
