Hi, I've built puppet-2.6.6 for Fedora and EPEL. The 0.25.x branch is not actively maintained. As mentioned in the subject, the license has changed from GPLv2+ to GPLv2. The reason for this is that upstream is considering a move to a different license (an ASL or MIT style license is what has been discussed). Their legal advice was that it will be easier to do this if the code is simply GPLv2 rather than "GPLv2 or any later version." As is typical with puppet version bumps, it is recommended to update the puppetmaster before updating the clients. Over the past several months of 2.6.x releases, a number of regressions and incompatibilities have been found and fixed. I've had a testing repo on fedorapeople.org for that time where early adopters can run the latest code. The feedback I've gathered there has been positive, with no ugly reports that existing configurations stopped working after the update (those will all come in after the update goes to stable in 3 weeks or so, I presume ;). For details on what's changed, refer to the upstream release notes: http://projects.puppetlabs.com/projects/puppet/wiki/Release_Notes (I've applied several of the noted fixes from 2.6.7rc1 to the packages headed to the testing repos.) -- Todd OpenPGP -> KeyID: 0xBEAF0CE3 | URL: www.pobox.com/~tmz/pgp ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Everyone needs to believe in something.
