Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Support Ubuntu Installs in the MPack
Date Fri, 15 Dec 2017 15:36:58 GMT
By 'direct support" I just meant that it becomes an installation target we
semi-actively maintain a specific installation method for.

Right now we don't need to communicate that all because we don't provide
anything other RPMs.  The cutoff is implicit: There's convenience RPMs you
can build, or you need to get it working manually.  Post Debs, this isn't
the case anymore.  The proposal is "We have convenience RPMs that are
regularly run up.  We have convenience Debs that are at least occasionally
checked and you probably should be able to run up.  Finally, you can do
things manually".

All I'm saying is that I would like that made explicit in our docs when we
integrate this work, so that people know what they're getting into.
