Subject: RFP: disco -- Disco is a MapReduce implementation with jobs written in Python
Date: Sun, 05 Jul 2009 15:52:36 -0400
Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist


* Package name    : disco
  Version         : 0.2.1
  Upstream Author : Ville Tuulos <tuulos@cs.helsinki.fi>
* URL             : http://www.discoproject.org/
* License         :  BSD
  Programming Lang: Erlang
  Description     : Disco is a MapReduce implementation with jobs written in Python

Disco is a Java framework for building distributed, data-intensive
applications modeled off of Google's MapReduce publication. Though the
core of Disco is written in Erlang, jobs are specified in
Python. Disco can be run on a cluster of machines but it will also
benefit data processing in situations with a single machine so long as
it has more than one core and can benefit from Erlang's
parallelism. Disco was developed at the Nokia Research Center.

Hi,

I'm the upstream author of the Disco project and I'd be very happy to
see Disco included in Debian. We run Disco on some 100 Debian servers
currently, relying on a custom package repository. I know many people
who would benefit greatly from Disco being available in the official
Debian repository.

The current experimental Disco packages for Debian (lenny / squeeze)
can be found at

http://discoproject.org/debian/

which are generated from the debian-branch of the Disco Git repository
at http://github.com/tuulos/disco. I'm not an expert at Debian
packaging, so a proper Debian developer should have a critical look at
the scripts. I'm of course more than happy to help with any issues
related to the codebase.

Minor fix to the earlier message:

> Disco is a Java framework for building distributed, data-intensive
> applications modeled off of Google's MapReduce publication.

Disco is *not* a Java framework. It doesn't contain a single line of
Java code. It's mostly Python / Erlang / Javascript.

Best regards,

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of disco back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 6 months.

If you are still interested in adopting disco, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 535891 ITP: disco -- A distributed computing framework
 owner 535891 !
 thanks

However, it is not recommended to keep ITP for a long time without acting on
the package, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to refrain from
packaging that software. It is also a good idea to document your progress on
this ITP from time to time, by mailing <535891@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,

Subject: Dependency on triq
Date: Wed, 24 Aug 2011 17:40:26 +0200
Hello,

Disco is dependent on 'triq' https://github.com/krestenkrab/triq which
has a binary blob, and is not packaged in Debian. This dependency is a
blocker for disco to be packaged.

Best,
Janos

Hi,

I am one of the upstream Disco developers.

To clarify, triq is not a strict dependency of Disco.  Disco only
depends on triq to implement some unit tests for the Erlang code,
which are triggered only by the 'make test' target.  We build Disco
debian packages on machines that do not have triq installed.

Secondly, the only binary blob that I can find in the triq source tree
is rebar, which is essentially contains the Erlang byte-code for the
rebar tool:
https://github.com/basho/rebar
Hence, this is not a closed-source binary blob, but is buildable from
software under the Apache License, version 2.0.

This use of a bundled rebar script is fast becoming the standard way
of building Erlang projects.  Disallowing binary blobs buildable from
free software would inconvenience packaging a great many Erlang
projects.

How do you suggest we proceed?

Thanks,

--prashanth
