    Woody retrospective and Sarge introspective

    Sarge“The battle’s done, and we kinda won,
    So we sound our victory cheer:
    Where do we go from here?”

    Anthony “aj” Towns has posted this message to the debian-project mailing list (non-technical discussions) about where we’ve been (Woody’s testing) and where we’re going (Sarge’s testing). The innards of the Woody release cycle are picked apart and scavenged from; the juicy succulent bits are kept, the gristle is left as a reminder. He further goes on to discuss what he would like to see from Sarge’s testing including regular CD builds using jigdo, debian-installer and fun with multiple architectures. Aj suggests that: The way I would like to see sarge run is basically to get it to “roughly” releasable status ASAP then keep it there.

    Subject: APT-Move maybe?

    apt-get update
    apt-move get
    apt-move sync

    You can configure apt-move to download packages where you want. You can also have /var/cache/apt/archives on other partition (or symlinks it as I have).

    Subject: time to look at apt-move again

    maybe i need to look into apt-move again. last time i checked it out, the package respository had just moved to the new structure (packages placed in a directory based on source package name, not distribution) and apt-move didn’t support the new structure (yet?).

    i have symlinks for enough of apt already, just to handle the large apt databases, and that’s only a kludge until i have a larger excuse/need to reformat/resize my partitions. 🙂

    thanks for the tip, i’ll look into apt-move again.
