The ‘dublin’ catalog is in freeze

June 23rd, 2012 by Maciej Bliziński

We have frozen migrations from the unstable catalog to ‘dublin’. In the unstable catalog, there’s a large ongoing upgrade of OpenSSL, from version 0.9.8 to 1.0.0. It requires many rebuilds. Some of the packages linking to the old version of OpenSSL are hard to rebuild, and we’ll be potentially dropping them rather than rebuilding. This concerns mostly desktop applications, as we’re moving towards specializing in server related software.

The upgrade only concerns the Solaris 10 and Solaris 11 catalogs. Solaris 9 will remain with OpenSSL 0.9.8.

The ‘dublin’ catalog will be no longer receiving package version upgrades, but we are working towards a setup in which we can provide security fixes for it.
