Hello,

I am the maintainer of the openerp freebsd port.
Someone asked me to update the port from 6.0.3 to 6.1 but it seems that
the source tarball is on nightly.openerp.com. Is this the definitive place,
or will it be posted in http://openerp.com/downloads/stable ?

Regards

Laurent

Hi Laurent,
The source tarball for 6.1 final stable is here: http://nightly.openerp.com/6.1/releases ... 1-1.tar.gz as specified on http://www.openerp.com/downloads
We should indeed have placed it in /stable, thanks for pointing it out. I'll let the team know.

It would be cool to add your freebsd port to the download page once it's done. Just let us know.
Thank you for your support.

Hi,

Thanks for your reply.
In Freebsd, the port consist just in a makefile which get the source tarball, and put the executables in the rights paths for Freebsd. Once the makefile is done, the user has the choice to work with the source or to get a package build by the freebsd team. There is no need to put the binary package as it's in the official ports collection. Maybe you could just mention somewhere that the port exists for freebsd ?

Regards

Laurent

Hi Laurent,

I'm the one who set up the links to nightly.openerp.com on our Downloads page because that is the place where the packages are being built, and it's easier to keep them in just one location. We used to copy them to our http://www.openerp.com machine (and still need to do it for the win32 ones, for obscure reasons), but we'd like to avoid duplication.
That way we can simply "bless" a certain nightly build to become the next minor/major version, without having to copy files around. Ideally the downloads page could stay untouched most of the time, simply using a URL alias or symlink pointing to the latest blessed release on nightly.openerp.com (that part is not done yet).

Is this a problem for maintaining the FreeBSD port in any way? Or were you simply asking in order to be sure of using a permanent URL in the port Makefile? We do not plan to move the release files, the blessed files are located under in nightly.openerp.com/{major_version}/releases.

Side note: seeing that you would like to update the port from 6.0.3 to 6.1, how did you plan to manage migrations? OpenERP does not support automated migrations from 6.0 to 6.1 out-of-the-box, so it will not be possible to use portupgrade et al. Perhaps it would be best to have a separate openerp61 port, similarly to the way there are multiple Python ports? (Sorry if this is silly, my FreeBSD skills are a bit rusty)
You could also consider using simply "openerp" as the base port name, because as of 6.1 the distribution contains everything you need to run openerp: server, addons, and client, with just one process to start.

Finally, concerning our Downloads page, I would be delighted to add an image of Chuck and a mention that OpenERP is available in FreeBSD's port collection, if you think that would be appropriate? Any image that we should preferably use?

Feel free to contact me directly for any further questions!

Hi,

Thanks for your reply. There is no problem with leaving the sources in nightly, as you said that's just to have a permanent url. I'll keep the nightly one from now.

I can easily make an openerp61 port if the upgrade is not automated. Will the 6.0 branch continue or 6.0.3 is the last one ?

For the mention in the download page, i'll ask to the freebsd team.

I'll keep you in touch.

Regards

Laurent

6.0 will continue until we release OpenERP 9.0.
We released 6.0.4 last week BTW.

Hi,
It took me quite a long time but the port as finally been submited.
I asked Freebsd team if their logo can be put on the packages page and
there is no problem. This is their answer :

Quote:
Note that since the logo is a trademark of the FreeBSD
Foundation, the only thing they would need to do is to ask the
foundation for a permission by mentioning their intended use, etc.
(this is normally quite simple procedure because this is a "goodwill"
usage and their use is directly related to FreeBSD):

http://www.freebsdfoundation.org/docume ... ines.shtml

The foundation can be reached at:

http://www.freebsdfoundation.org/contact.shtml

Hope this helps!

Thaks again for this great software.

Laurent
