[HEADSDOWN] augeas support in puppet3 works again

i've finished updating all puppet related packages and they are now in
the unstable catalog. 

this also fixes augeas support on solaris 10 x86 which did not work.

just as a reminder: the newer puppet packages require ruby20, so it will
get installed alongside ruby18.

to switch between default ruby versions use

alternatives --config ruby

puppet related packages (ruby_augeas, hiera, facter and puppet itself)
always use ruby20.

please test and report any bugs you might discover.

[HEADSUP] facter updated to 1.7.6, pulls in ruby20

it's me once again...

i've just updated facter in the unstable catalog to 1.7.6. the updated
version uses ruby 2.0.0 instead of 1.8. so on upgrading to facter 1.7.6
you will also get a newer ruby version.

running ruby 1.8 and 2.0 in parallel should work without any
problems. you can always switch the default ruby version with

alternatives --config ruby

if you have any problems running facter 1.7.6 please drop me an e-mail
and open a bug report.

Re: OpenCSW question about package py_openssl

If you want to compile stuff make sure to install all the CSW*-dev packages. Unfortunately
not all Makefiles list all needed header files, so you may need to find the others. If you
encounter such an issue just drop us a note so we can add that to the Makefiles.

That is strange, CSWpy-openssl is already dual-build for 2.6 and 2.7:

„dublin“ is the only release that still has the 2.6-only build py_openssl-0.11,REV=2011.07.16,
all other releases already have py_openssl-0.13.1,REV=2013.10.23. Please verify
with pkgutil -V to which release you are subscribed.

Inactive maintainer accounts have been retired

Hello OpenCSW maintainers and users,

We've done a cleanup of maintainer accounts.

Some maintainer accounts were not active for a long time. If a
maintainer did not upload a package in the last 2 years, we've changed
the account status to 'Retired'. This allows our website to display
information which is closer to the truth.

Changing status to retired is a reversible operation, so if anybody
wants to come back and build packages, please do!

Many thanks go to Ben for handling it.

This is a volunteer project, so if there is someone around who wants a new gmp for himself
he will probably do it. We are always looking for maintainers, so if you are able to help
your contribution is very welcome. Nonetheless I’ll post the request and see if there is
interest among the maintainers to make an updated package.

OpenSSL 1.0.1j not in testing catalog

I see that package CSWlibssl1-0-0 has been updated to OpenSSL 1.0.1j in
the unstable catalog, but doesn't seem to be in the testing catalog
(which is what we are using).  Is this latest version going to be in
the testing catalog any time soon?  If not, is there a way to get just
that one package from the unstable catalog, since it has fixes for

updated ruby20/puppet3 packages


i'm just getting my feet wet with building opencsw packages with
mgar. we are using puppet on solaris and i would like to update the
puppet3 packages. as far as i know the current maintainer of the puppet3
packages is no longer interested in updating to a newer version

what i've done so far:

- updated the puppet3 Makefile to puppet 3.6.2 and added a dependency on
  ruby20. the current ruby version used for puppet (1.8) is old and
  according to out of maintenance.

- created a new package for hiera, as the puppet master now depends on

- refactored the ruby20 package into ruby20, ruby20_ri and ruby20_dev
  and added a dependency on libssl_1_0_0

we are going to do some more testing with these new packages and i would
love to bring these changes upstream.

what's not quite clear to me is how do i bring these changes upstream?
should i open bug reports for puppet3 and ruby20? what about the new
hiera package?

or should i post patches?

sorry for all the questions, any help would be appreciated

This looks like a substitution error. I am still looking into the build recipe
where this artifact comes from. Would you mind also opening a bug report? This way
I can properly track the issue.

Not yet. Unfortunately maintainer headcount is declining and until 
steps up to make packages for php5 and apache 2.4 there won't be
