We're currently using XenServer instead of VMware, so I just don't know
if you really need to build your own packages. Afaik shapeblue's public
repository has been built with noredist.

Here's short list (sorry, we didn't report everything to the bugtracker
by now) of caveats:

* There's a more precise dashboard (XX.XX% instead of XX%)
-> Nice, but only works with locale set to EN or C or anything with
decimalpoints instead of commas :) ... consequently the default
language of the GUI will also be selected identical to your locale.

-> Ldap Authentication doesn't work. You need to apply https://github.c
om/apache/cloudstack/pull/2517 to get this working.

-> Adding a NIC to a running VM (only tested in Advanced Zone,
Xenserver, Shared Network to add) fails with an "duplicate MAC-address" 
error. See my post on the ML yesterday.

-> cloudstack-usage doesn't start since (at least Ubuntu, deb packages)
the update doesn't clean old libs from /usr/share/cloudstack-
usage/libs. For us cleanup and reinstall fixed that.

-> SSVM's java keystore doesn't contain Let's Encrypt Root-CA (maybe
others are also missing) so don't expect working downloads from
cdimage.debian.org via https :)

-> A few nasty popups occur (but can be ignored) in the GUI e.g.
selecting a project and viewing networks.

-> A minor documentation bug in the upgrade document: The apt-get.eu
Repository doesn't contain 4.11 right now. download.cloudstack.org

To us none of that problems was a stopper, but your mileage may vary.
