Now that Arch64 site and svn are up and running again, are we ready to start packaging!? :-) I'm curious to know who's working on packages and who has accounts, etc. (If you don't have one, contact c14n for one. If you want your name on the web page, contact him or me. We're both pretty busy ATM, so please be patient).
I think it might also be useful to discuss who's working on what. We don't have enough devs yet to assign specific people to specific packages like the Arch core team does, and each of us has different levels of experience (I, for example generally give up if I can't get it to compile within a few tries and a half-assed google search for 64 bit patches.....).
We have two issues to address, maintaining existing packages and adding new ones. maintainig packages isn't a big deal, whoever gets to updating one first should be able to submit the svn and package before anybody else wastes too much time on it. I guess if you have trouble and are working on it it wouldn't hurt to let everybody know you're trying to solve it so they can work on other stuff.
For building new packages, if there is one you are working on and having trouble with, it probably pays to let others know to reduce duplicate effort.
Lets also start a list of what needs to be worked on. Perhaps this should be put in a wiki page so we can all maintain it:
Packages needing updating: nontrivial: kernel26 initscripts
trivial: haven't had time to look
Packages needing contribution: (these are some I personally need before I consider Arch64 my primary system): OpenOffice 2 vlc jpilot
I've tried the last two and got errors that I haven't had time to investigate. Is anybody working on oo? If not, I can try to do it, but I'm not sure my packaging skills are up to snuff.
Any other ideas to help get rolling?
