Alex if you want to go back to system versions you purge the nightly and
then remove the repo and reinstall the system version

I have added the developers list.

Greetings developers

I wanted to put forth a suggestion at the admin weekend this past weekend
but I have done so now. As in the previous emails the suggestion was to
create TDF hosted deb and rpm based repositories. I was talking with joel
madero earlier in the week and using dpkg basically messed up his system.
Seeing as dpkg doesnt do dependency resolution I was thinking of a
repository to prevent end users from having to use dpkg and run into
dependency problems.

Seeing as the builds are mostly automated all that would need to be done is
them put in the repo. The advantage of these repos is that those that want
to be on the bleeding edge can as well i feel it will improve overall QA as
it is easier to install the latest version. This isnt limited to Debian
based distros but can also be applied to rpm based distros as well.

Looking forward to developer feed back

Also, I noticed that the packages for 4.1 do not replace the ones for 4.0,
so I essentially had 2 copies of LibreOffice installed to other day.

I think this is (currently) by design, so that TDF packaged don't override
the system ones.

 For the majority of users, having this linked into their systems update
mechanism will help keep the majority of the userbase up to date, anyone
who doesn't want to update can always pin the older versions in apt.

No arguments here.

 Sorry I'm having issues finding that specific thread in the archives, do
you have a link?

Here's the link on Nabble.


 With regards to time, that's the answer I was hoping for :)

Glad to hear you're interested.
