Allowing others to (also) admin the project is a good thing. This was
also very helpful in the Debian GIS team whose admins were all busy with
other things. I suggest to extend the admin change to more than just
Jérôme, and include all highly involved team members to prevent the lone
admin being a single point of failure.

Perhaps the Geospatial devroom at FOSDEM is a good opportunity to
recruit some fresh blood into the team(s). If Johans talk about OSGeo
Live, UbuntuGIS and Debian GIS is accepted that will be the perfect
opportunity even.

Sadly no one other than Johan and myself have confirmed attending
FOSDEM, which does underscore the low activity of the various team
members.

Hello,

First of all, I can confirm there will be a OSGeo live/debian gis talk
on FOSDEM (not yet scheduled).

I agree it is a good idea to have different admins and I'm a candidate
to be one of them.

[Ubuntu] UbuntuGIS Admin

2015-01-09 Thread Alan Boudreault

Hi All,

First, I wish to everyone a happy new year! :)

A year ago, I had proposed the idea to create a PSC since my 
availability for the project has changed. The PSC creation hasn't work 
very since there are not enough people available to take care of 
UbuntuGIS. I don't think I'll be able to jump back in the project since 
I'm now working for another company. I would like to propose to give the 
Admin rights to Jerome Villeneuve Larouche (Mapgears). This include 
admin rights for the PPA, mailing list etc. Mapgears has leaded 
UbuntuGIS since years and will always be available to help, which is not 
necessary my case. That admin spot change could be considered as 
*temporary* until someone else brings a strong interest with the PSC.


Jerome, we discussed this briefly last month, are you guys still 
interested to take that admin spot?


All, what do you think? Feel free to comment :)

Best Regards,
Alan

Jerome,

I think we should not include apache2 in ubuntugis: this is an
important server package with an enormous amount of reverse
dependencies.
Moreover we can not provide the necessary security updates that a
package like apache2 requires.

Since your package seems to break some existing installs I will remove
the package from unstable and move it to testing (so we still have
your changes).

If you still consider the update needed discuss that one definitely on
this list first.

I will first remove apache2 from the repository.

The apache2 update has broken apache. Luckily this is my sandbox server with

Is Apache2-v2.4 needed for the update to MapServer??

How do I revert the Apache installation?

Re: [Ubuntu] Packaging work flow policy

Ivan,

These rules mostly apply to DebianGIS. No official rules have been 
established yet for UbuntuGIS. They make sense to me though.


Alan

On 14-01-07 03:09 PM, Ivan Minc(ík wrote:

Dear UbuntuGIS devs,
If I understand things correctly, there are few important rules in 
packaging work flow which I did not found anywhere in UbuntuGIS wiki.


1. All UbuntuGIS packaging work should be done in Debian's Alioth Git 
repositories at git.debian.org http://git.debian.org by members of 
pgk-grass group [1]
2. UbuntuGIS packaging in git.debian.org http://git.debian.org 
repository should be done in dedicated branches [3] and with correct 
versioning policy [2]
3. Packaging of new version should always start in Debian unstable, 
then it could be adjusted in Ubuntu branch and than package in 
UbuntuGIS PPA could be build. This also means that UbuntuGIS could not 
build any package which does not exists in Debian unstable or at least 
in experimental


For me, these steps looks very reasonable and could bring very good 
final result. If all these steps are true, could they be written in 
UbuntuGIS wiki as official policy ?


1 - https://alioth.debian.org/account/register.php
2 - http://linuxminded.nl/tmp/pkg-grass-website/policy.html#ubuntugis-ppa

Re: [Ubuntu] UbuntuGIS PSC Creation

2013-11-13 Thread Alan Boudreault
I agree with Hamish that, most importantly, what UbuntuGIS needs is 
developers. People that are able to package. Ideally people that are 
interested to also help DebianGIS. DebianGIS also need packagers. So 
having a PSC without developers/packagers doesn't make sense to me. I'm 
still very supportive to have users/people to help with all other PSC 
tasks though.

Hi,

without getting too presumptuous, Frankie L. is an obvious person to

tbh I'm not really sure how a PSC would actually benefit UbuntuGIS or
OSGeo. A PSC is good for making strategic and political decisions, but
95% of our issues are technical ones where the wider pool of
developers participate in may the soundest idea win. The main
strategic decision we have right now is the repo re-naming, which I
think most of us are in fair agreement about anyway.

I'm all for breathing life into the project in whatever way we can,
but at the same time am concerned about adding new layers of
bureaucracy which might morph into a time+energy sink/inefficiency,
and avoiding the situation of too many chiefs  not enough braves.
Another thing to be concerned with in small groups like ours is to
avoid the appearance of a cabal, where new contributors don't feel
part of the technical decision making group, and we desperately need
those new contributors to be part of the technical decision making
group.. On the other hand I fully accept Alan's concerns about his
bus factor, in DebianGIS for a long time we've relied on Frankie
in the same way.


just some thoughts,
Hamish


Agreed the PSC isn't about trying to exclude people from the
discussions. In fact I would suggest that even though a PSC is being
created there are no PSC only discussions and that just because a PSC
exists does not mean it has to have the only votes that count. We can
easily say the rule is we take the community decision that is 95-100% in
agreement (essentially consensus of participants).

There are only a few key things the PSC handles:
Adding/Approving Committers/Uploaders
Approving the community recommendations for repo naming/roadmap
Admin rights to the trac, launchpad and mailing list
Being the official contact people
Facilitating community discussions
Reminding people of their commitments (agreed maintainers), and
soliciting new maintainers when we need them (see item 1).


I'll note OSGeo Live has an informal PSC committee just by the nature of
who participates in the decisions: Hamish, Angelos, Cameron, Brian and me
And we already operate in a similar manner where technical issues are
openly discussed until we reach a conclusion everyone agrees to (or
doesn't outright object to).

I'm not too concerned about too many Chiefs in this particular project.
We mostly just want to improve the efficiency since right now packaging
uploading is completely on the fly which leads to some duplication of
effort or standing around and waiting when know one knows who's planning
to upload what or when.

I'd probably be the only Chief since I still haven't managed to
successfully upload what should be simple updates, everyone else here
seems to have a handle on how to get packages in.

Thanks,
Alex

 4. Still at least by my opinion, the PPA naming  stable,

packages
 migrates from testing, staging to production and how often and
under which
 circumstances production packages are upgraded.

I agree this is confusing and maybe the roadmap helps clear it up.


I You think about it, my proposal to PPA structure is following:

* ubuntugis-development - development versions of packages. Package 
version changes until they move to 'ubuntugis-staging'


* ubuntugis-staging - staging versions which will be prepared to move 
at the time of each new ubuntu distribution release to 'ubuntugis-stable'


* ubuntugis-stable - packages for all ubuntu distributions (LTS an non 
LTS) which will never change versions for a particular ubuntu 
distribution once released (only bugfixes available) - packages for 
each new distribution will be uploaded at the time of ubuntu 
distribution release

Packages will be supported for each ubuntu distribution life time.

* ubuntugis-backports - backported packages for LTS distributions. Can 
be upgraded as time goes on for all distributions


Maintaining packages in 'ubuntugis-stable' for LTS distributions is 
long-term, responsible and boring task. This task I see as candidate 
for dedicated maintainer which could be financially supported by 
companies or organizations.


I propose this structure change with release of 14.04 LTS.

[Ubuntu] UbuntuGIS PSC Creation

2013-11-05 Thread Alan Boudreault

Hi,

As a few of you may already know, I've recently decided to quit my job 
at Mapgears (http://t.co/aIgMAFlf2h). I'm still working at Mapgears as a 
part-time job but my availability for ubuntugis is limited.


For to goodness of UbuntuGIS, I would like to create a PSC (Project 
Steering Committee) for the project. There are many competent people on 
this list and a lot of ubuntu users. The PSC responsabilities would include:


- setting the overall development road map
- improve collaboration with DebianGIS
- trying to bring more developers!
- etc.

I also think UbuntuGIS needs a new senior package maintainer. Jérome did 
a great job during the summer and will continue to work on the project 
with Mapgears.. but he is still at school for the moment.


I'd like to hear what you think...  

Best Regards,
Alan

It's pretty easy, just make a postgis-gui.desktop file and in the

debian/packagename.install]. The menus will auto-assemble based on
the Categories=; line. See many of the install_*.sh scripts on the

around the /usr/share/applications/*.desktop files.

[Ubuntu] UbuntuGIS - Google Summer of Code

2013-06-05 Thread Alan Boudreault

Hi all,

As some of you may already know, we got a OSGeo Google Summer of Code 
slot for UbuntuGIS. I'd like to introduce Jérome Vileneuve Larouche (a 
student at The University of Québec at Chicoutimi) You may already have 
seen his name on the list since he was working part time with Mapgears 
during the last year. As the mentor of the project, I'm going to work 
with Jérome to update and improve UbuntuGIS.


The main goals of the project is to:

- Train the student to be comfortable with debian/ubuntu packaging.
- Provide the UbuntuGIS-Stable Upgrade (biannual upgrade)
- Provide packages for Ubuntu Raring.
- Update UbuntuGIS unstable packages with all latest softwares 
(Collaborate and contribute to DebianGIS)
- Collaborate with the user on the mailing list to be aware of the known 
issues and  provide new package and/or fixes

- Provide upstream patches to various osgeo projects.
- Create a new repository for debian stable (7.0) with all current 
up-to-date packages
- Create more documentation for users and new contributors. (Howtos, 
tutorial)
- Collaborate with the OSGeo LiveDVD project (more packaging for their 
setup?)


We would be happy to hear comments/suggestions from the community to 
improve UbuntGIS.

Guys,

For your information, the ubuntugis-testing PPA has ubuntugis-unstable 
as a dependencies. I've always used the testing ppa to put custom 
version of a softwares. So a user have to add both repositories to get 
everything working. Since there is not many packages in testing... I 
think someone can easily setup the testing ppa, install the new 
software... and remove/downgrade the packages if they want.


Would be cool if someone could document this in the wiki. Let me know if 
you need any permissions.

Option 1a while complicated would let you use multiple versions at the

There is a bug in php5-mapscript in the stable branch - that stops a

https://github.com/mapserver/mapserver/issues/3942 (this bug was

At the moment in both stable and unstable branches all
php5-mapscript based applications that output their data directly to

The version from testing (rc1) is working fine.

Re: [Ubuntu] Mapserver 5 for hardy

2012-11-12 Thread Alan Boudreault
You can download the source package and rebuild it, if you are a bit 
familiar with the debian packaging. Otherwise, you can build it from 
source. Take a look at this page:


http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/?p=pkg-grass/mapserver.git;a=commit;h=5940528118671a9817b1892cdede67026d485b31

You'll see all the dependencies in the debian/control file and the 
configure options in debian/rules.

# ensure unstable in uninstalled
sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:ubuntugis/ubuntugis-unstable

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntugis/ppa

# update
sudo apt-get update

# verify if you see postgis 2.0. You should see 2 entries. One with 2.0

sudo apt-cache show postgis

# install postgis
sudo apt-get install postgresql-9.1-postgis postgis

# It's might be useful to do an upgrade if you still experience issues:
sudo apt-get upgrade

Let me know if everything works.

[Ubuntu] Proposal: dropping hardy support

2012-04-10 Thread Alan Boudreault

Hi all,

As you might know, UbuntuGIS is following DebianGIS development to build 
its packages. Hardy has already 4 years now and building packages for 
this distribution is getting more and more work. Everytime, we have to 
revert a lot of changes from the debianGIS packages since everything is 
deprecated in hardy. As example we have to


- revert dependency versions
- revert policy update
- modify the rule file since it was using a too recent debhelper
- change the compatibility file
- remove various support in the build process since their dependencies 
are not available in hardy

- trying to build and get failure!
- and so on...

My proposal is to drop the hardy support to allow us to focus on recent 
ubuntu releases. The state of the repository will stay as it is now. 
However, we will still provide support for *security fixes*.


Let me know your comments/opinions. I also apologize about this. The end 
of support of hardy was planned for april 2013 but packaging needs 
time and it's hard to find helpers.


Regards,
Alan

Oggetto: [osgeo4w-dev] Binaries Packaging - A Strategic Investment
Data: mer, mar 21, 2012 07:04


Folks,

I've mentioned this before, and I don't have anything surprising to add now.
I just wanted to bump this topic.

I believe that producing good quality integrated distributions of OSGeo
binary software for a major user platforms is strategically important for
OSGeo and would be worth an investment of moderate amounts of money to
promote.

For me two packaging efforts stick out, though I might be biased.

1) OSGeo4W - I think the Windows environment is (still?) very important and
OSGeo4W is a credible community effort to satisfy it that could benefit
from more involvement, polish and a broader package set.

2) Debian/Ubuntu/LiveDVD - I believe that Ubuntu is today the dominant
desktop/server linux system and that the packaging efforts of the DebianGIS,
UbuntuGIS and LiveDVD groups build on one another and provide high impact.

If board members or community members see high impact and reasonably
priced opportunities to extend these efforts with OSGeo money I hope
they will come forward with them.  I'd also like to see us do more on the
OSGeo web site, with case studies, etc to promote these package suites
in a manner appropriate to their level of readiness.

I also think the MacOS environment is very important but I'm not entirely
clear on the best way of addressing that.  Good ideas on this aspect are
also welcome.

Best regards,

Re: [Ubuntu] ubuntugis-unstable should have recent gdal

2012-02-02 Thread Alan Boudreault
testing is not really maintained, I only use it for a few testing 
(rarely) so there not much there. stable PPA is only upgraded twice a 
year, or for security releases. It does not contain any oneiric packages 
because oneiric is new. and we do not push the packages since we don't 
know if they are *stable* since no user tested them at the moment of the 
upgrade. In april, the unstable-oneiric packages will be moved to stable.


gdal 1.9 has been pushed quickly in lucid mainly for the OSGeo Live DVD. 
It needs a few more work to be *ready*. It will eventually be pushed in 
all ubunbu supported distributions soon (~2 weeks?).


Thanks,
Alan

Hi,

I would like to see gdal-1.9.0 make its way into ubuntugis-unstable. I
see that it has been compiled for lucid, does that mean we can expect
it for more recent distros soon?

Also, is there active maintenance of the ubuntugis-stable and
ubuntugis-testing?  It might be useful to have only 2 versions of
ubuntugis (unstable/stable) for easier maintenance.

ubuntugis-stable: there is nothing for oneiric and  I  think that
gdal-1.8.1 should be there as well.

Let me know if there is any way I can help.

 6.0.0-beta2. This is the latest beta on our way to a final 6.0 release,
 and includes a large number of fixes made during the Montreal Code Sprint.
 
 The 6.0 release introduces important changes in key components of the
 MapServer core (rendering, query and expressions), and for this reason
 we count on you, MapServer power users, to help test the release in your
 respective environments and provide feedback (through the users list or

 This is the second of four planned beta releases and if all goes well a
 final release should occur around the end of April. The full release
 plan which also includes the list of new features and changes in this
 release is available at:

 Core Changes in MapServer 6.0 which could affect existing applications:
 
 * MS RFC 54: Rendering Interface API
 * MS RFC 64: MapServer Expression Parser Overhaul
 * MS RFC 65: Single-pass Query Changes for 6.0
 
 New Features and Enhancements in MapServer 6.0:
 
 * MS RFC 58: Kml Output
 * MS RFC 60: Labeling enhancement: ability to skip ANGLE FOLLOW labels
 with too much character overlap
 * MS RFC 61: Enhance MapServer Feature Style Support
 * MS RFC 62: Support Additional WFS GetFeature Output Formats
 * MS RFC 63: Built-in OpenLayers map viewer
 * MS RFC 66: Better handling of temporary files
 * MS RFC 67: Enable/Disable Layers in OGC Web Services
 * MS RFC 68: Support for combining features from multiple layers
 * MS RFC 69: Support for clustering of features in point layers

Re: [Ubuntu] Python mapscript Segmentation fault

2011-02-15 Thread Alan Boudreault
hi Frank,

Would you be able to try to reproduce that bug using a manual installation of 
mapserver/python binding. I would be interrested to know if it's a packaging 
bug or not. It might be a swig binding bug.

Thanks,
Alan

 Hi,
 
 I have a problem with python mapscript concerning the OWSRequest.

 Map debug level is 5, console output is:

 Segmentation fault
 
 
 
 I am using the following sources:
 deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntugis/ubuntugis-unstable/ubuntu hardy main
 deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntugis/ubuntugis-unstable/ubuntu
 hardy main
 
 
 Whenever I pass the request to the mapserver cgi all works as expected.
 It seems the parameter parser for python mapscript uses another parser
 than cgi-mapserver. Using urllib.quote, urllib.quote_plus doesn't help
 any further.
 
 
 
 Many thanks for help and tipps

Re: [Ubuntu] GDAL 1.7.3

2010-11-26 Thread Alan Boudreault
Hi Tom,

Yes, packaging 1.7.3 is on my list. However, Karmic is no longer supported, so 
I wont build the package for it. Once the package for Lucid will be made.. it 
should very easy to rebuild it on your karmic machine without (or a few) 
modifications (IIRC).

thanks,
Alan

 Hi,
 
 I was just wondering if there are any plans to build GDAL 1.7.3 soon
 (specifically for Karmic in my case), If someone tells me what's involved,
 I'd be happy to join the team and try building myself.
 
 Many thanks,

Re: [Ubuntu] Proposal - Cleaning up dependencies/repos

2010-11-24 Thread Alan Boudreault
I agree that RCs (perhaps excepting grass) should stay in unstable. However, 
it would be nice to know if there are real issues in qgis/geodjango with 
spatialite 2.4 rc2 before rebuilding packages in the stable ppa. Do you think 
you could test that? I'm also uncertain if it's a good thing to downgrade the 
spatialite package in the repo. But if there are issues, we'll do it. In the 
future, we will avoid to put RCs in stable.

About gpsprune, have added ubuntugis unstable PPA as dependency in your ppa? 
If not, it would be useful to recompile your gpsprune package with the 
ubuntugis dependencies and retest it. (btw, I have absolutely what gpsprune is 
and what its dependencies are)

Thanks
Alan

On November 23, 2010 05:11:05 pm Alex Mandel wrote:
 So I ran into an interesting quagmire of dependencies.
 The moral of the story, I would like to propose that RC candidates of
 apps stay in unstable and not trickle into stable and maybe not even
 into testing (this could be a little looser).
 
 Particularly the issue I ran into is that spatialite 2.3.1 isn't in the
 repos at all, Lucid has 2.3.0 but it seems stuck on geos 3.1.0 which is
 making my QGIS crash. I would upgrade to spatialite 2.4 RC but I'm not
 sure that plays nice with GeoDjango yet.
 
 So under my idea
 Stable would have 2.3.0 or 2.3.1, QGIS 1.5(Could be upgraded after we
 know 1.6 is safe)
 Testing would also have 2.3.1, QGIS 1.6
 Unstable would have 2.4 RC x
 
 That way in testing there would be a nice reliable set of QGIS, gdal,
 spatialite etc that are known to be fairly good and unstable would have
 more cutting edge stuff. I realize maverick included spatialite 2.4RC
 and think that may have actually been a mistake since the author admits
 it's a bit buggy (not to say 2.3.x series doesn't have it's issues). But
 more importantly some underlying changes could cause issues for QGIS,
 GeoDjango etc. In summary having some slightly older version no longer
 available in Debian or Ubuntu might actually be a + to the everyday user
 if the distro jumps the gun on an app(in stable of course).
 
 This needs a little fine tuning obviously since GRASS tends to have
 really long release cycles and maybe could be summed as the testing
 ppa has the last known stable release.
 
 Any thoughts?
 
 Thanks,
 Alex
 
 PS: I'm more than willing to help package, just still new at it. Looks
 like gpsprune for Lucid worked and I would love to have that copied to
 ubuntugis.
