Adding openSUSE repo from YaST GUI fails #24
Just tried to add the v5 repo and I'm getting the following error. This was the URL: http://downloads.rapiddisk.org/pub/releases/5/opensuse42/
I haven't commented on this issue yet but that is partly because I do not know if I want to continue supporting the package repos. The upkeep with every official release, especially as it pertains to the latest and greatest release of each respective distro, is quite consuming. So, I have been weighing the option recently, on whether I should continue doing this or just retire them.
Please note, this does not in any way, invalidate the build scripts included in the source code (i.e. the SPEC files). I will continue to maintain those for individuals to run local package builds.
Thoughts? I am also open to suggestions.
I think having official packages helps with exposure/popularity/adoption. Yes, it is a lot of work. I'm just thinking, of the people interested in trying RapidDisk, how many don't try it because there isn't a ready built package available.
It'd be nice if third-party repos adopt the package, since those devs have more experience with their respective distros, but in the meantime, you may want to provide repos of your own. You'll have to choose winners and losers. For example, recently Solus has been picking up speed, but you don't have a Solus package/repo.
I think automating the build and repo maintenance process would be the way to go. I don't have experience with the CI tools, but this would be a reason to learn. GitLab provides free build capacity in their repos if needed.
I think I have figured out the openSUSE
