Hi Kopano community,
First of all congratulations with this excellent project with ditto documentation!
Being a Zarafa user for many years now, and realizing that the reason the “old” Clearos box is still running; I am trying to set up Kopano for my own personal use. Having bad experiences with nightly builds, they are there for testing, I am opting for compiling it from sources targeting centos 7. Flowing the lead of the Suse maintainers, already succeeded and have have an running setup,
My first question is about the releasing-policy; or how to be more precise, how do they relate to ‘stable’ ?
Is it like it’s Friday afternoon-beer time and you decide it is about time to push a release out? – just kidding – nevertheless I can follow the lead of (the close to the source sitting) maintainers at Suse, I would prefer to build it form release tagged source, rather than a snapshot, so I know where I am looking at.
Other questions are regarding (build)dependencies;
Jsoncpp > 1.4.0 #the package in the el7 epel repo (0.10.5) is still based on the 0.x.y branch (which holds compatibility with some ancient compilers) but supersedes 1.4.x in time-line.
Is there a exscind reason, other than 0.x.y wont build for arm-architecture, to demand > 1.4.x?
Libs3 > ? Requirements regarding Libs3 version is a bit fuzzy, not that important as I probably opt for building it without amazon S3 support. Never the less I got quirky builds with the el7 epel libs3-2.
Are there minimum requirement for libs3?
And this worries me a bit:
Until now no problems building it with gcc 4.8.5, I it is always possible to use a devtootsetX, however for arm this is not so eminent.
Is gcc 4.8.x being dropped?
