perlbal and mogilefsd mailing lists [Oct. 4th, 2004|04:33 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
As of last week there are now mailing lists for perlbal (our fancy HTTP load balancer) and mogilefs (our distributed filesystem):

http://lists.danga.com/mailman/listinfo

Unfortunately their websites are still under construction, but our goal is to get them both up by the end of this week.

I imagine once we have docs and downloads, interest will pick up. But the mailing list is there now if you're curious already. (and your curiosity will help shape the docs....)

One of these days I must find a way to stop hating mailing lists.

Is there a document explaining how it work? I've only found a rather terse presentation. So far my dream setup was wackamole...

debian packages?

If you feel that the software is stable enough to be in Debian, I can package it for you no problem.

Also, I learned to do RPMs. Do we have an RPM build of memcached?

Re: debian packages?

Debs would be great! Perlbal hits a nasty Perl 5.6 bug, so it'd have to be sarge or sid only, but duh... you can't add stuff to woody anyway.

No RPMs of memcached that I know of. Don't you need to make 500 RPMs, one per RPM-using system? I dunno how that works.

Re: debian packages?

Well for RPMs we'd make a source RPM, and then have some people test-build binaries. Source RPMs are they only really sane way to do it.

Perlbal should be fairly easy to get sarge-capable. 5.6.1 bugs aren't really an issue.

If you think they're ready to go in, I might be able to get something together.

There's gotta be a way to bootstrap a redhat system in a chroot, but damned if I know what it is.

Re: debian packages?

I can test build on ES 3.0, if that helps at all. been building a few dozen custom rpms as of late...

We're looking into replacing the firewall/load balancer combos here. evaluating perlbal a bit would be nice.

Not that they really matter, but the icons on the bottom are broken. Mailman integration with Apache (at least in Debian) is a little rough. Add an Alias line for /usr/share/images/mailman/. You'll probably want to dork with IMAGE_LOGOS in /etc/mailman/mm_cfg.py, since it's using /images right now, whereas you probably want /images/mailman. Or just set IMAGE_LOGOS to zero for text links.

Comment preview spellchecker fared badly displaying the above, so apologies if ends up mangled
