Packaging (Arch Linux)


I just created a package for urbackup-server 2.
And now I’m wondering whether I should also package the client or not. With the new shell package and thinking about the auto-upgrade feature, it looks like it makes more sense to not create distribution specific packages.

I’d like to get some community / dev input on this point ?


That’s a good question. I guess some people will want to install it via the distibution nontheless. Specifically with Arch there is some performance to be gained by compiling crypto++ for the specific processor (main one: AES-NI) plus then it is installed and updated like any other package.

Anyway updating the packages to version 2 is not so much of an effort. So if anyone is interested:
