Packaging Giraffe

Giraffe is the free open source variant of the Zarafa Collaboration Platform packaged for Debian.

Resources

Current State

The packages are not available by the Debian repositories, the packaging process is not yet finished.

To Do

libvmime

zarafa-server, ...

  • import upstream version 7.2.0 (./)

  • Fix Lintian errors and warnings
  • Review and forward patches against libical (and libvmime, see above) on upstream. For now it seems we can run with the versions of the revitalized package.

  • Move dlopen'ed libs to private directory
  • Remove embedded copies of fckeditor via the dfsg-clean branch in git, (use fckeditor package)

    • To be re done with version 7.2
  • Use dbconfig-common/Debconf to generate the initial configuration (./)

    • database name
    • database user
    • database login
    • place of the database (local or remote)
  • Use dbconfig-common to generate the initial database configuration

    • installing zarafa-server breaks without this (./)

    • zarafa-server shouldn't create the database on it owns (it needs to much mysql rights for this -> CREATE DATABASE is needed)

      • we can do the creation of the database by dbconfig-common and the setup of zarafa-server by the postinst script

  • Test full functionality
    • We'd need some Outlook users here, too...
  • fix init script
    • systemd compatibility
    • error out when database is missing
    • often hangs on stop
  • systemd unit
  • clean up packages (empty packages etc.)
  • MTA integration
  • check package descriptions
  • logrotate (upstream available in installer/linux/zarafa.logrotate, put in zarafa-common, split it per package)
  • check pre-/postinstall scripts: they do no error handling, don't include debhelper snippets
  • z-push upstream update
  • do not run as UID 0 (problematic for zarafa-search, otherwise it is configurable in the config files)
  • zarafa-client:
    • Rename zarafa-client to libzarafa-client since it contains no client programs
    • make libzarafaclient a proper versioned shared lib (or a private one)
  • zarafa-libarchiver: rename to libzarafa-archiver
  • zarafa-common: kill it with fire, no useful parts

WebApp

  • Package webapp (which seems possible since it is AGPL3, too). prepared git repo: https://github.com/tijuca/zarafa-webaccess

  • WebApp tarball ships jQuery, extjs (3.4) and TinyMCE 4.0. (TinyMCE is does not seem to be in the Debian repositories)

    • Lintian is complaining about jquery-1.6.2.min.js, player.swf, moxieplayer.swf, ext-{base,all}.js, prettify.js
