Fraser Tweedale, brand new Red Hatter, working in the Brisbane
office on FreeIPA/Dogtag, and needing the wisdom of seasoned IPA
developers on how best to set things up.
In particular, is it common to be developing in VMs, and if so, do
the various components (DS, Dogtag, IPA etc) under (or involved in)
development reside on the same host? Are there any developer images
that are ready to roll?
Almost everyone is developing in VMs these days.
The way IPA is installed, all components comprising a single master run
on the same host.
You can simply start by kicking off a VM based on Fedora 20 ISOs and
then either do 'yum install freeipa-server' in the VM or select FreeIPA
server target in graphical UI in anaconda installer.
Regarding development profile, look at BUILD.txt in freeipa git repo, it
has a recipe to install required development packages.
