Packaging?

Greetings,

I recently started using TeamCity under Linux (to support my work in PhpStorm and RubyMine), namely Arch Linux, and would like to ask if it is acceptable to build package definitions for the Arch User Repository also known as AUR.

AUR allows Arch users to download and install applications integrating nicely into the system which are otherwise not available. This would not provide prepackaged installations but only a shortcut for user to download and create TeamCity packages from the archives you supply.

With kind regards,
Daniel

Daniel,

Sorry for the delay in replying.

I've never heard of AUR before. Do you suggest to add discription/link to TeamCity download into the list?

I see no issues with that.

Our license prohibits re-distribution, but I believe users can repackage TeamCity for thier own needs, provided the product functionaing is not affected.

AUR is much like Gentoo and the ebuild system. Here is an example http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=45651 This contains the package definition for PhpStorm, and what it depends on. Using those definitions one can download and install PhpStorm from JetBrains and install the trial version. I have built pretty much the same for TeamCity which is not yet packaged for Arch Linux.

I'll upload the TeamCity package instructions to AUR, then you can have a look.

Edit: forgot to mention that the package would only change the config files a bit so that a per user installation of TeamCity would run.
