Hi Goldwyn,

This is awesome..but one bit of feedback - there is no need to have
both an openSUSE Factory and openSUSE Tumbleweed repository for
ha-clustering as Tumbleweed now == Factory

The only reasons OBS still offers both as options as Build targets are

1. Legacy - Factory and Tumbleweed used to be different things, now they're not.

2. Opportunity to signify implied Intent of the repository - As
'Factory' is still the Project which Developers contribute packages to
(before it becomes tested in openQA and then published as Tumbleweed),
being able to offer 'Factory' repositories is a clear sign that this
is for 'Developers only, please stand back'. vs 'Tumbleweed'
Repositories, which implies 'Ready for rolling-release users to use' -
this is something we use in GNOME, where we build all of our highly
experimental repositories against Factory, but use Tumbleweed for
every repository we want other people to touch.

3. Advanced OBS Building - the Factory Build target allows building
against 'standard' and 'snapshot', whereas Tumbleweed just builds
against 'snapshot' - if you dont know what this means, then you're one
of the vast majority - most OBS Devel projects never need to think
about this minor difference.

Having drbd and the rest of ha-clustering building against both
Factory and Tumbleweed is eating up build power for no benefit, the
packages will be identical.

As this great announcement is to encourage more users to use DRBD 9.0
rc1, my advice would be to drop the 'Factory' build target from
network:ha-clustering:/Factory

Cheers,

Richard

Hi,

DRBD 9.0 (rc1) is available for Opensuse family at the standard opensuse
development project on OBS (Opensuse Build Service):
https://build.opensuse.org/project/show/network:ha-clustering:Factory

The links directly to the repos are:
Opensuse 13.2
http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/network:/ha-clustering:/Factory/openSUSE_13.2/

http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/network:/ha-clustering:/Factory/openSUSE_Factory/

Opensuse Tumbleweed
http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/network:/ha-clustering:/Factory/openSUSE_Tumbleweed/

Whats new in DRBD 9.0:

* Multiple node replication across a mesh network of up to 32 nodes
* Mixed protocols across all nodes: Synchronous and asynchronous
* Distributed configuration across the whole cluster with 'drbdmanage'
* Auto-Promote of selected nodes
* Re-Balancing of volumes across the cluster
* Diskless node operation
* RDMA integration (e.g. for Infiniband, RoCE, IWarp)
* Cinder driver for OpenStack (Upstream for Kilo release)
* Nova bits for OpenStack available, will be pushed upstream L-Release
