Description Terje Bless 2002-10-27 12:12:13 UTC
We need to build RPMs of a supported version of OpenSP before release.
Comment 1 Ville Skyttä 2002-10-27 12:26:02 UTC
Some things to consider here:

OpenSP is written in C, hence it is platform/distro dependent.  What platforms
do we intend to support or distribute binaries for?  The source RPM should be
made as portable as possible.

For example Red Hat distributes an older version of OpenSP in the openjade-1.3.1
package.  Must take care that the packaged, newer OpenSP doesn't interfere with
the already existing openjade package.  Maybe installing into /usr/local instead
of the normal RPM way of using /usr would be enough.
Comment 2 Ville Skyttä 2002-10-27 12:32:46 UTC
This one depends on the OpenSP tarball (#52).
Comment 3 Terje Bless 2002-10-28 05:37:59 UTC
I'm not aiming for supporting much more then just current Red Hat with the RPMs.
If anyone wants to take on the task of maintaining a "binary" package for other

I'm hoping there will eventually be a new release of OpenSP 1.5 that will
obviate the need to distribute Validator-specific binaries. In particular, since
OpenJade now links against a standalone OpenSP I have hopes OpenSP 1.5 will make
it into the most relevant distributions eventually.
Comment 4 Ville Skyttä 2002-10-28 07:54:09 UTC
Providing the RPMs (only) for RH8 is fine with me, but I guess we have to be
careful not to make the impression that W3C endorses any specific platform or
distro... perhaps need to ask about this on qa-dev.
Comment 5 Terje Bless 2002-11-19 10:42:01 UTC
Since it looks like a final release of OpenSP 1.5 is right around the corner, we
might get away with just pointing at SourceForge.
Comment 6 Terje Bless 2002-11-30 18:28:13 UTC
Since it looks like there will be RPMs directly from the OpenJade Project I
suggest we just close this bug and point to
Comment 7 Ville Skyttä 2002-12-01 07:07:28 UTC
Fine with me, closing this to get it out of the way.  In the meantime, the
required RPMs for RH8 are at <>.
