#296 closed task (wontfix)

create OSGeo repository for .deb's for LiveDVD & documentation

Reported by: tbowden Owned by: sac@…
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: OSGeoLive Keywords: repo


We need to create a repo for storing OSGeo created .deb's of apps & educational material as packaged. Target platform will (for now at least) be Ubuntu 8.10 (due in a few weeks).

We need to find an appropriate server. Bandwidth and disk space to be consumed currently unknown ;-)

Do you need any special services on this server? If all you need is http, I'd suggest placing within where the live dvd image already lives.

If we build the repo ourselves, we will need limited shell access for whatever repo package admins we have so they can scp the src files to the server then run the processing scripts (at least that's my limited understanding for now).

Roald de Wit has suggested we look at Launchpad for our live DVD package building. Looks like it takes away the need to set up our own repo if we go down that track. Looking into it.

fwiw, the DebianGIS Alioth SVN is available to host build scripts etc. but not .debs for download.

DebianGIS no longer runs its own file repository; packaged .debs are now pushed directly into one of unstable, experimental, or


To maximize developer effect, it is my hope that, as much as possible, the ubuntu & debian liveCD build scripts can be drawn from a common source.

The LiveCD currently has hosting via Is hosting a Debian archive for LiveCD packages still something people are interested in, or has the process for building the LiveCD moved past this point?

speaking on behalf of both the DebianGIS and LiveDVD teams, it is not a pressing priority right now AFAICS; if it was I`d have already set it up ;) UbubtuGIS have their ppa.launchpad if needed and they are very osGeo friendly.

taking the liberty of closing this request as obsolete. if the edu team still need some space, just ask.
