Subject: new pseudo-package: cloud.debian.org
Date: Sat, 17 Nov 2012 15:33:23 +0100
Package: bugs.debian.org
Severity: wishlist

On the https://lists.debian.org/debian-cloud/ list, people are working to
maintain Debian images for public/private clouds. As it happens, those images
will have bugs related to the image preparation process rather than to specific
packages or other parts of the Debian infrastructure.

We would like to have a BTS pseudo-package to use to keep track of those bugs.
They will be reported either by team members to track pending work, or directly
by users once we can point them to the pseudo-package in question.

I'm confident there will be enough bugs to justify the pseudo-package
creation. As an example of the last 2 weeks of work, we would have used it, if
available to track several issues that you can find in the list archives
(e.g. using http.debian.net as mirror, disabling contrib/non-free in the
default configuration, documenting the public URL where to download the images
from, etc). All this is before actual user usage of the images; they'll surely
find *more* issues.

The name "cloud.debian.org" has been suggested to me by Don Armstrong and
people on list have agreed with this suggestion. It is a good one to avoid
potential clashes with package names in the future. Once set up, we can ask DSA
to make http://cloud.d.o a redirect pointing to the most appropriate page on
www.d.o or wiki.d.o.

Many thanks in advance for your help,
Cheers.

I forgot to explicitly mention the corresponding "maintainer" address
we'd like to have for the pseudo-package. It is the mailing list we're
using for cloud discussions, i.e. debian-cloud@lists.debian.org

Cheers.

Zach,
I also welcome to modify cdn.debian.net redirect to nearest mirror
from Cloud CIDR.
