Description Richard Freeman gentoo-dev 2010-09-09 20:34:35 UTC
Any objections to stabilizing the current version of neatx?  It has been around for a while now.
Comment 1 Bernard Cafarelli gentoo-dev 2010-09-13 19:30:14 UTC
No objection, I had hoped that neatx would become a lively project and get all features from freenx, but it is still at revision 59. Still it works great (for the features implemented), so indeed let's stable it and a few NX packages at the same time

Arches please test and mark stable =net-misc/nx-3.4.0-r3 (NX protocol fixes) =net-misc/neatx-0.3.1_p59-r1 and =net-misc/nxserver-freenx-0.7.3_p104-r5 (newer openssl support), thanks!
Comment 2 Richard Freeman gentoo-dev 2010-09-16 01:17:45 UTC

amd64 stable

did not get a chance to test freenx.

Note nx is just a bit under 30 days.  Also - I'm not sure that we should be using -r3 since there is a change to the upstream package.  Arch teams really aren't the ones to make that call so I'm fine with stabling this in a week or two, but you might want to check on that with QA/etc (I'm not sure there is a sane way to track these versions unless you split package).
Comment 3 Bernard Cafarelli gentoo-dev 2010-09-16 09:18:17 UTC
nx package has multiple sources, as it follows upstream releases: Nomachine only updates them once in a while, when releasing new versions of their binary releases, and all open-sources packages with fixes get bumped at the same time. So tracking changes is easier, for example these in -r3 are listed in the binary release announcement:

Else, -r3 is recent, but it is only bugfixes on -r2 (5 tickets listed in the link, most work upstream is on the upcoming 4.0 release), which did not trigger any bugreports. As NX packages are troublesome to test, I targeted -r3. But ok let's wait for the 30days mark

Current stable version:
blocks the new openssl (recently marked as stable):

Is this enough reason to hurry up? ;)
Comment 5 Richard Freeman gentoo-dev 2010-09-28 19:00:07 UTC
amd64 stable

Only nxserver-freenx remains.  I'm not sure how quickly I'll be able to get to that one as I'd need to set up a chroot to not mess up my existing config...
Comment 6 Bernard Cafarelli gentoo-dev 2010-09-29 09:42:46 UTC
Packages in tree are old enough now anyway :)

Readding arches, please test and mark stable:
* amd64 only needs =net-misc/nxserver-freenx-0.7.3_p104-r5 stable
* x86 =net-misc/nx-3.4.0-r3 =net-misc/neatx-0.3.1_p59-r1 and =net-misc/nxserver-freenx-0.7.3_p104-r5

Richard, there is eselect-nxserver which allows multiple servers installed at the same time and easy switching between them, but it's only been tested by me (so no guarantee it won't break your setup or kill a kitten)
Comment 7 Markos Chandras (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-09-30 11:03:32 UTC
amd64 done
Comment 8 Markus Meier gentoo-dev 2010-10-05 21:10:50 UTC
x86 stable, all arches done.
