When is 0.5.2 due to hit the repositories?

0.5.2 won't. 0.5.0 is a development/testing "branch". Given a sufficient period of testing and questions on IRC, if there are no problems, I'll push it to the mirrors as 0.6.0 (stable).

Failing any additional feeback, I'll rely on what I've tested and will push in a couple of weeks.


I've cobbled together my own .rpm packages
using the latest source from git

I think they have some minor problems
   bad %files section
This may already be corrected upstream.  Depends when your checkout was.

but I think they are close enough for now
and I think they will automatically be updated when 0.5.2
hits the repositories.
Yes...

But I'm not 100% sure I haven't made some mistakes that
are bigger than I realize, since I have not really built any
rpms for years.

I'll be happy when my funky rpms are replaced.
Hopefully they aren't any more funky than the specfile already included with Cobbler in the source checkout.
("make", "cd rpm-build", "rpm -i cobbler-something.rpm")

    It's a public wiki ... so community generated examples are always
    welcome anytime.   You'll need to create a Fedora Account System
    account
    to get
    started:   https://admin.fedoraproject.org/accounts/

    However, just to get folks started, I've written some things up:
    https://hosted.fedoraproject.org/projects/cobbler/wiki/KickstartTemplating

    Probably more than most want to know :)
