Mountall enhancements for ZFS on Linux

The home for this git repository is:

Mountall packages in the ZoL PPA at https://launchpad.net/~zfs-native are built from this repository using the git-buildpackage tool.

Casual Build Instructions

Just do quick builds like this:

$ apt-get source --build mountall

Developer Build Instructions

  1. Clone this repository:
$ git clone git://github.com/zfsonlinux/mountall.git
$ cd mountall
  1. List the current releases by branch name:
$ git branch --list 'master/*'
  1. Or list previous releases by tag name:
$ git tag --list 'master/*
  1. Checkout the branch name or tag name that you want to build. For example, the latest code for Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin is:
$ git checkout master/ubuntu/precise
  1. Now compile it:
$ git-buildpackage -uc -us
  1. And clean the working tree afterwards by doing this:
$ git clean -df
$ git reset --hard

Release Build Instructions

$ git-buildpackage --git-tag -S -sa
$ dput ppa:zfs-native/staging ../mountall_*_source.changes

Upstream Repositories

Each of the upstream branches in this repository is an unmodified copy of an official distribution repository, like those hosted by the Debian or Ubuntu projects. The git-buildpackage framework combines an upstream branch with the corresponding patch-queue branch to create a master branch according to the debian/gbp.conf file.

By default, git will pull the upstream branches from the clone origin at Github and not the actual upstream respositories. Look at the git-config.txt file in the readme branch for an example of how to configure remotes that pull from the official distribution repositories.

Some of the remotes for this repository are bzr repositories at Launchpad. Pulling through bzr requires this bridge helper:

https://github.com/felipec/git/blob/fc/remote/bzr/contrib/remote-helpers/git-remote-bzr

Just download that file directly into the /usr/local/bin directory and make it executable. Also run bzr launchpad-login to ensure that you have a working bazaar installation.

The upstream branches for Ubuntu may be disconnected or incomplete because Ubuntu does not always use source control for system updates. In such cases, the upstream branches will be supplemented by git-import-orig.
