#2246 closed enhancement (invalid)

missing packages from the beta repository

Reported by: stdedos Owned by: Antoine Martin

Description

I was trying to fetch the updates from the beta repository today (02.04), and, to my surprise, everything was wiped clean (xenial and windows).

After (manually!) going through r22000 --> r22260, I figured out that the case is (probably) that 2.5.x was released.

Since I've read somewhere that mixing release and beta repository shouldn't really be mixed. Is it unreasonable to have the "last release" as "the first package" in the beta repository, in all possible ways?

Can you please please build the zips for the released version also?

That's not the case. The beta one is supplemental, you must have both enabled to use it.

The beta channel is for pre-releases. Use stable to get proper releases.

Can you please please build the zips for the released version also?

The ZIP builds are there in the stable repo.
For the beta repo, they may be posted occasionally, it does take extra time / bandwidth.

Replying to Antoine Martin:

Since I've read somewhere that mixing release and beta repository is ill-advised.

That's not the case. The beta one is supplemental, you must have both enabled to use it.

So far, I've always used:

you must have both enabled to use it

So, I don't understand this

Is it unreasonable to have the "last release" as "the first package" in the beta repository, in all possible ways?

The beta channel is for pre-releases. Use stable to get proper releases.

What if I want to always be on the bleeding edge, be it "beta" or "stable"?
I understand they are "beta"s, but, a lot developers/maintainers are building "mature betas" in some sense (I am not sure what to call them? Release Candidates? -- probably too much. Something worse than "stable", but "better enough" than a beta/alpha/canary/dev release).
I've seen here so far that this is the case too, so, I feel comfortable with basically whatever you upload.

Can you please please build the zips for the released version also?

The ZIP builds are there in the stable repo.
For the beta repo, they may be posted occasionally, it does take extra time / bandwidth.

Apologies for pushing :/. I have only recently discovered how easy it is to switch between versions using the zip-files, so, now I am in love with them :-D.

You need to have both deb https://xpra.org/ xenial main and deb https://xpra.org/beta/ xenial main enabled.
As per wiki/Download: the beta repositories are supplemental ones so you must also configure the stable repository to use them

a lot developers/maintainers are building "mature betas" in some sense

That's what the beta channel is meant to be. It is not a daily build, the buildbot is only scheduled whenever there are enough new features and hopefully not too much breakage.

I'll try to remember to post more of them.
