OpenStack: Mitaka beta 1 packages available, Liberty uploaded to Jessie Backports

OpenStack Mitaka beta 1 Debian packages available

I didn’t find the time to announce it until today, though I have finished last Friday to package Mitaka Beta 1. It is available, as usual, on the Jenkins server Debian repository:

deb jessie-mitaka-backports main
deb-src jessie-mitaka-backports main
deb jessie-mitaka-backports-nochange main
deb-src jessie-mitaka-backports-nochange main

Not all of the updated packages avialable above has been uploaded to Debian Experimental, mostly those needing to pass the FTP master NEW queue did. I will upload the rest as I find enough time to do so, which unfortunately may not happen before Mitaka b2 (which will be in the middle of January).

OpenStack Liberty uploaded to jessie-backports

Also, as python-repoze.who 2.x finally could migrate to Debian testing (after filed to be removed dependencies got removed by the FTP masters), python-pysaml2 3.0, and then Keystone also did. So this week-end, all of OpenStack Liberty reached testing. So today, I could finally upload all of OpenStack liberty in the official jessie-backports repository. This is 165 packages that I uploaded, out of which 135 are going through the backports NEW queue. I’m sorry to give that much work to the FTP masters, but most OpenStack users do want to use the latest release of OpenStack on top of the latest stable distributions. So this upload really is what OpenStack Debian user will prefer (until we have PPA^Wbikesheds for Debian).
