#558 closed defect (fixed)

kpreid says that the -SUMO tarballs don't exist

Reported by: zooko Owned by: cgalvan
Priority: major Milestone: undecided
Component: packaging Version: 1.2.0

Launchpad Bug:


This points to a flaw either in the install.html or in the hosting of -SUMO tarballs or in the manufacture of -SUMO tarballs.

Honestly, although I liked the idea of the -SUMO tarballs when we came up with them, I don't want to spend the time maintaining them, so I would be just as happy to remove mention of them from the install.html . That would also simplify the install.html.

I think it would be fine to remove the mention of them from the install.html, or at least be sure to mention that they are meant for people that want to do a 'desert island' build, which was why they were created in the first place.

Ok, let's make -SUMO tarballs be part of the "more installation details" page -- http://allmydata.org/trac/tahoe/wiki/InstallDetails -- and not the install.html -- http://allmydata.org/source/tahoe/trunk/docs/install.html .

Please submit a patch that does this!

I have submitted a patch that removes the mention of the -sumo method from the install.html inside the source, and the InstallDetails page on the wiki already talks about the -sumo method being used for the "desert island" build scenario.
