Hi All, There are a couple of vcl appliances in the form of vmware vm's that are used by the community. These vm's are scattered across several hosting sites (ibiblio, oscar systems, etc). I think we need a system for maintaining, support, and hosting for these appliances.
Here are some opinions/datapoints to start the discussion: - I propose that we have one supported appliance version for simplicity - I'd like ibiblio host it if they and Apache are cool with it - The current vm at ibiblio (vcl v1.6) should be deprecated - A fedora version of a vm exists here - https://wiki.oscr.ncsu.edu/wiki/index.php/The_VCL_2.1_Virtual_Appliancegives - We are working on a sles vm version Questions to answer: - Which vm(s) should be currently supported? - Where should they be hosted? - Who handles this in the future and what is the process (how to track with releases, testing, schedule, etc)?
