I just finished testing ALL installation scripts. I have recorded the
results in the above status spreadsheet. Some fixes have also been
applied in trunk.
I think our major issues right now are:
1. Java: Only openjdk has been installed but I realize that some
desktop packages (like uDig, Kosmo...) have a version of sun-java-jre +
JAI bundled within their installation archives. This raises an
"If we allow desktop gis projects to bundle sun-java, why we should not
allow web services (geoserver, deegree etc) to do so too?"
Should we install sun-java (even by hand in the base vm, before running
the scripts, and not by using any automation) and help all the projects
use that SINGLE instance OR perhaps should we remove every instance of
2. UbuntuGIS being available for 12.04 and PostGIS version to be included.
