New 'hail' repository created, with major packaging rework




A new git repository

	git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/daemon/distsrv/hail.git

was created, preserving the full histories of cld.git and chunkd.git. The existing cld.git and chunkd.git repositories have been left untouched, for now. I also have not yet updated tabled.git for this new work, though it should be an easy matter of linking against libhail rather than other libs.

This new repository creates hail-$VERSION.tar.gz tarballs via "make distcheck", producing libhail, cld and chunkd binaries.

libhail is a single shared library binary, linking together cldc, ncld, libtimer, and chunkdc modules. In other words, libhail at present is a simplistic combination of cld/lib and chunkd/lib.

The RPM package specfile has been updated (pkg/hail.spec) to generate the following complement of packages on Fedora:

Wrote: /garz/rpm/SRPMS/hail-0.7-0.1.gc69acd63.fc12.src.rpm
Wrote: /garz/rpm/RPMS/x86_64/hail-0.7-0.1.gc69acd63.fc12.x86_64.rpm
	-> contains libhail
Wrote: /garz/rpm/RPMS/x86_64/hail-cld-0.7-0.1.gc69acd63.fc12.x86_64.rpm
	-> contains cld
Wrote: /garz/rpm/RPMS/x86_64/hail-chunkd-0.7-0.1.gc69acd63.fc12.x86_64.rpm
	-> contains chunkd
Wrote: /garz/rpm/RPMS/x86_64/hail-devel-0.7-0.1.gc69acd63.fc12.x86_64.rpm
	-> contains libhail devel libs, headers
Wrote: /garz/rpm/RPMS/x86_64/hail-debuginfo-0.7-0.1.gc69acd63.fc12.x86_64.rpm


rpmlint still issues several warnings about hail-cld and hail-chunkd packages. That must be fixed before this package suite rename can be submitted to Fedora (pkg renames must be submitted as new packages, and go through the pkg review process all over again).

To produce hail*.rpm packages on Fedora, I would do something like this:

1) set up rpm build directories (== $RBD in this example)
2) git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/daemon/distsrv/hail.git
3) cd hail
4) ./autogen.sh
5) ./autogen.sh
6) ./configure
7) make -s dist
8) cp *.tar.gz pkg/*.init pkg/*.sysconf $RBD/SOURCES
9) cp pkg/hail.spec $RBD/SPECS
10) cd $RBD
11) rpmbuild -ba SPECS/hail.spec


As mentioned above, the {cld,chunkd}.git repositories have been left untouched, so if something goes wildly wrong with this scheme, we can easily backtrack.

Comments welcome.

	Jeff
