Nightly Builds / Misc Website stuff

Post by Meklort »

I've been thinking about starting up my nightly build server again (with a faster internet connection). Because the svn server does generic builds, is this wanted / needed. Also, if it is, would you like to see anything special with it such preinstalled w firefox, qemu, vmware player, or even ppc builds w pearpc (if i can figure out how to do those)?

Also, is there anything else the community would like website wise (or, as stated before, an option to request a burned cd for the price of shipping).

i think its a bit early to be offering ROS on cd,the build versions change so quickly that by time you recieved the cd it would be out of date,maybe a bootcd iso with some extra GPL applications included?

I think it would be nice to have firefox and the downloader app.

It would be cool to have some branches built, like ppc or cc rewrite. But I doubt you'd be able to get much of it actually compiling, or running for that matter.
It compiles, let's ship it!

What's the story with the cc rewrite?

It's the famous cache manager rewrite, which supports ext2 and was fabled to have *loaded* the windows ntfs.sys driver once.

It's in one of the branches, but the last commit to it was two months ago. It's probably very out of date.

No, Mozilla license is not GPL-compatible. But I think this work should be considered as a "mere aggregation," so it does not fall under the scope of the GPL.

Firefox is under multiple licenses, one of which I believe is the GPL. They're fine.

licenses don't really matter to you. All you're doing is repackaging freely available software, which is perfectly legal.

Yeah, but in theory, he's also distributing it. Most people won't care though, so it really isn't a problem.

you can redistrubute it. This is exactly what linux distros do. They are made up of various licenses
