This is very early version of the diaspora package and not recommended for production yet.
diaspora package is available in debian testing/unstable.
# apt-get install diaspora
This will create necessary database initialization and configuration using postgresql.
Diaspora Installer Package
This will install gems via rubygems.org (hence it is in contrib). This is production ready and powers pods like poddery.com and diasp.in
Enable diaspora stretch repo
Import archive signing key
The archive is signed with Praveen's OpenPGP key:
2A79 74AE 2FC1 52D7 7867 DA4A CE1F 9C67 4512 C22A
Import the corresponding key to your system:
# gpg --recv-keys --keyserver pool.sks-keyservers.net CE1F9C674512C22A # gpg --export --armor CE1F9C674512C22A | apt-key add -
If you have difficulty getting the key via keyserver, you can get it via wget
# wget https://people.debian.org/~praveen/gnukhata/praveen.key.asc # apt-key add praveen.key.asc
Update your repository list
Once you import the gpg key, add the corresponding repository to sources.list and update the packages list:
# apt-get install apt-transport-https ca-certificates # echo deb https://people.debian.org/~praveen/diaspora stretch main contrib >>/etc/apt/sources.list # apt-get update
then install diaspora-installer[-mysql]
# apt-get install diaspora-installer
We hope to be able to provide diaspora-installer[-mysql] via stretch-backports soon.
If you have contrib section in your sources list, you can just run
# apt-get install diaspora-installer[-mysql]
The source code of diaspora-installer package could be found here.
- Add autopkgtest (see gitlab for how to do it)
Policy for dependency updates
Help keep the gem versions in sync. If deb version of a library is older than required by diaspora (run 'bundle install --local' on a develop branch checkout of diaspora upstream), update the deb version. If debian already has a new version of a library, update the corresponding gem version in diaspora.
- tiny version change, patch gemfile
- minor version change, test compatibility
- major version change, test compatibility and embed gem if needed
Coordinate with upstream for major version updates.
