Packaging files for Varnish Cache

This repository contains the necessary scripts to package up Varnish Cache.

How to build

The flow is roughly:

  1. Set up the build environment. On Redhat that is mock, on Debian/Ubuntu you need sbuild.
  2. Put the Varnish Cache .tar.gz archive into sources/.
  3. Run ./package-deb or ./package-rpm.

Branch structure

This repository will contain a master branch and zero or more maintenance branches.

master should be used to build the last stable release _and_ the development release, all the way up until development diverges enough that it isn't useful/possible any more.

At that point, a maintenance branch should be branched off. These should be deleted from git 12 months after the release is end of life. Before deletion, a git archive of the branch should be extracted and made public.

If you can work around branching, do it. Rather have one slightly untidy packaging ruleset, than two/three slightly different that needs to be kept in sync.

Setting up the Build environment

Debian/Ubuntu

NOTICE: These instructions need improvements. Please send pull requests!
  • install sbuild, schroot and other required tools:

    sudo apt-get install sbuild schroot debootstrap devscripts
    
  • use sbuild-createchroot to set up a standard chroot for building packages, see sbuild

    set $REL to the release to be set up, $ARCH to the architecture:

    REL=jessie
    ARCH=amd64
    sudo sbuild-adduser $LOGNAME
    sudo sbuild-createchroot \
      --include=eatmydata,ccache,gnupg \
      ${REL} \
      /srv/chroot/${REL}-${ARCH}-sbuild \
      http://httpredir.debian.org/debian
    

    The package-deb script assumes a chroot environment by the name trusty-amd64, so an alias needs to be added to the chroot we've just created:

    echo 'aliases=trusty-amd64' | \
      sudo tee -a /etc/schroot/chroot.d/${REL}-${ARCH}-sbuild-*
