Title: Include kiwi-ltsp in Factory

openSUSE-11.2: Evaluation
Requester: Important

Requested by: Jigish Gohil (cyberorg)

I've been maintaining KIWI-LTSP: LTSP5 implementation on openSUSE using
KIWI in server:ltsp Build Service repository, now it is at the stable
and production ready state.
This is request to include the packages(not all of them) in openSUSE
Factory, and possibly 11.3 later.

- Include kiwi-ltsp in Factory (novell/bugzilla/id: 474360)

#1: Jigish Gohil (cyberorg) (2009-02-10 08:42:08)
Should this have gone on ?

#2: andrea florio (anubisg1) (2009-02-10 09:16:58)
+1 for me... kiwi-ltsp is great and works fine!

#3: Shrenik Bhura (sbhura) (2009-02-11 05:20:31)
The inclusion will largely serve as an impetus for further development
of this great project. With increased exposure, the motivation to
deliver a quality project shall also increase.

#4: Ken Yap (ken_yap) (2009-02-11 06:31:44)
Yes, please include it in OpenSUSE, it will make OpenSUSE more
attractive to people who want to build thin client clusters.

#5: Stephan Kulow (coolo) (2009-02-11 06:53:23)
why not Factory:Contrib? And I agree with #1
Having it in Factory means currently that someone from novell needs to
review them and that's why we created contrib where everyone capable
can maintain packages that go with a specific openSUSE release.
And for having it on the DVD it's a bit too special use case, so it
would be online repo only anyway.

#11: Michael Löffler (michl19) (2009-03-25 16:18:11) (reply to #5)
I agree with coolo - contrib. Any yes we should make server:ltsp repo
more prominent. Support for ltsp parts in initrd needs to be verified

#6: Jigish Gohil (cyberorg) (2009-02-11 07:00:00)
Not on the DVD, but Factory and OSS online repo.
Instead of Contrib isn't current location - server:ltsp more
Idea is to include it officially in the distribution. I am sure we can
make a same kind of arrangement we have in place for compiz to maintain
this as well.

#8: Patrick Barber (pdjbarber) (2009-02-14 20:10:16)
This is a useful package for education, busniesses and homes alike, i
use it to provide a consistant environment for my kids no matter where
the log on...and its continued develpoment would benfit everyone

#9: Lars Vogdt (lrupp) (2009-02-19 12:58:53)
Looks like we need at least the following packages in openSUSE:
* kiwi-ltsp,
* kiwi-desc-ltsp,
* ltspfs,
* ltsp-server
Please give me some days to review them.

#10: andrea florio (anubisg1) (2009-02-23 00:59:45)
probably also kiwi-pxebootprebuilt isn't it?
