Thank you for updating on X-Mas, Guillaume!
Merry Christmas to you and all users!
Are dotdeb’s MySQL, Nginx, PHP packages built as Upstart server?
@Json : Dotdeb is built for Debian stable. It still uses the systemV init scripts.
@Guillaume Thanks, do you plan on offering upstart service for dotdeb packages in future? Since upstart is available on debian.
@Jason : no plan for this yet. I’m following Debian’s packaging scheme. Did you take a look at those packages for Ubuntu? http://packages.tooptee.org/
@Guillaume In that repo, most updated packages such as PHP 5.4 stuff are marked as experimental. Are the experimental packages used in production environment? Are the experimental packages safe to use?
@Jason : they’re used on a heavy-loaded production environment at IsCool Entertainement. A good friend of mine maintains them.
@Guillaume Thank you very much for your hard work, I’ve just made a donation of 50.00 EUR to dotdeb to show my appreciation 🙂
@Jason : Oh! Thank you so much! 🙂
