Include Eucalyptus

Please could we include Eucalyptus in the next release?  For thos unaware of Eucalyptus please see their
homepage , and for those that are too lazy to do that - Eucalyptus is an Open Source alternative to Amazon's EC2 Cloud computing offering.

This is the very product that Ubuntu are using for their "
Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud ".  I am not advocating a "jump on the bandwagon" or "keeping up with the jones'" attitude.  I am however advocating empowering our distribution and community with the necessary tools to stay ahead of the pack.

I can also see several instances where the openSUSE project could potentially benifit from implementing our own cloud - it's no secret that there are some infrastructure constraints, and going down the Utility/Grid/Cloud/$Current_Buzz_Word computing may help things.

For those that question whether there is a demand for it, I will admit there may not be a huge demand at the moment.  The key thing is if we can market it right (in co-operation with Eucalyptus) we can get a much bigger uptake on both products - even our darling SLE cousin can join in the fun ;-)

I second this.  I had actually already started packaging this a couple months back in OBS.  I didn't get really far as I got distracted, but I'm planning on finishing it.

great. I don't see us doing a big fuzz around it, but having the pieces together sounds like a neat goal - especially if we already have someone at it.

First I needed to downgrade Axis2 to 1.4.1 (latest stable version is 1.5.1 and 1.5.x are not compatible) and forget about build It from source (with maven). Perhaps we need a Java packager working on It. Can you please check at [1] what I got?

I was not able to get Axis2/C compliant with FHS since It need a lot of fixes on Eucalyptus's Makefiles.

I also need an OK from you on It[2].



Considering It I have Eucalyptus building locally, just need polishing scriptlet sections.

Stephen, any progress on your side?

I haven't been focused on this, but I know some other people have been working on it.  Let me find out where it is at and get back to you.

I started to help Stephen on packaging it but it was not as simple as I expected. And I was also an inexperienced packager.

I can update things and send a feedback in 24 hours.

As there are binaries for openSUSE 11.1 ( ) would it be helpful to get in direct contact with Eucalyptus? I remember I had a contact once - need to digg it up.

Eucalyptus 2.0 is ready at home:decriptor:eucalyptus. Where should we send the packages?

Please ask on opensuse-packaging for a proper devel project.
