Re: egroupware for etch

2007-02-14 Thread Mgr. Peter Tuharsky

Do You all mean it?

We use EGroupWare 1.2.106 on daily basis, with Debian Etch and even 
Debian Sarge, and we see it as vastly superior release, compared to 1.2.105.


Needless to say, that new stable version is arising, 1.4, so that in 
upstream, the 1.2 will be for sure just bugfixed and security maintained.


I have always be using the upstream version, however I appreciate the 
Debian packages, despite of their archaism. They allowed me to install 
the EGroupWare quite simply, with all dependencies, and then just move 
to upstream.


I don't think that abandoning EGroupWare entirely for Etch is good idea. 
I also don't think that including the upstream version is bad idea.


The old, inferior and barely maintained upstream PHPGroupware resides 
there, and the superior ancestor -the EgroupWare -is being kicked out 
just because of far-from-perfect development model of Debian.



Please reconsider.

Peter

 Then you might as well remove the package from etch because no one in 
 their right mind is going to want to use or maintain that.

Suit yourself; if that's your position as the maintainer, it doesn't exactly
bode well for security support post-release if it were to be kept in. 
Hinted for removal.

 I've had a look through the debdiff and can't se anything that stands
 out as a regression, but with a complete change of the database handling
 functions, I'm not sure that there won't be any problems.
