Found conky-1.8.1-i586-2vl60.txz in the VL7 testing repo...should I rebuild it with vl7?

Yes, the one in testing is built against an older version on ncurses that is no longer part of vl7.

But it seem it is still inside the VL7 repo...kind of confusing...

Packagers please check out this page on the vl60->vl70 package migration document.

Shows all packages submitted on the packagers board for vl70.  Should be useful to track progress and also for ensuring against duplication.

I'll do my best to keep it up to date.

https://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?hl=en&hl=en&key=tcuw02DuXr7regZ5bEBmi9A&authkey=CJOHnPQN#gid=16

Still looking for volunteers from the community. Have something for all experience levels.  PM me or chat right on the google-doc.
Thanks;
Ken

Packages, just bringing up this point again.  To avoid duplication is a two step process. 1. Sign the 'dibbs' column so that other packagers know you are working on it and two check the submitted-list sheet (also part of the google-doc) It will show you was has been submitted already.

The reason for this is two different sheets may list the same package. I'm trying to clean this up, but when I started I just posted it as I found it in the vl60 sources directories. 

This should ensure we don't duplicate, also, please list your packages on the submitted page as soon as possible, even before you have actually submitted it.

Another important point.  We need to be packaging on the newest Version of vl70. Earlier versions did not have python 2.7.1 and had different names for a couple key dependency apps, like ncurses.  Some packaging will have to be re-run on vl70 current just to be sure.

I don't have access to make announcements from "VectorLinux > General Announcements > VL package news and Updates", so here will have to do.

Packages for vl70 were piling up while toothandnail is away and I want to thank the packages for their patience in seeing their hard work find a home in gslapt.

Budulay, hata_ph, kc1di, nickdm, and myself have all contributed packages so far, and of course anyone and everyone is welcome to join.

Also, a special shout out to hata_ph with over 150 packages contributed.!!!!

The good news is that I now have access to upload any contributions that you may have for vl's repositories and if you check gslapt I think you will find everything is caught up now and your contributions are ready for the community to test. 

Please use this link to see the full list of packages, who made them, whether they are uploaded yet, and whether they have been tested....

Anyone who wishes to become a tester can pm me and I can give you access to edit the document. Testing can be as simple as verifying that the application starts, has an icon in the menu, and doesn't produce and error message, when started from inside the terminal.

Also, anyone who may have been holding back on packaging because they saw the packages where not moving out of contrib, need not worry.  I've enough free time to stay on top of whatever you throw at me, so bring it on. Cheesy

I also want to say that after spending just a short amount of time in toothandnails shoes, he did an excellent job with a very laborious task.  I'll hold down the fort temporarily but will gladly step aside when he returns.

Putting a fork in the migration project and calling it done.  Over 500 packages built from the slackbuilds of the old vl6.0 repositories upgraded to the newest source and loaded into vl7.0 repo's. Pretty happy with the result and were we are at considering we are not even at the official Release candidate stage yet.

If any one is interested in the next repository growing project look here...
http://forum.vectorlinux.com/index.php?topic=13605.0

This is a modest start to what I hope will be the abs migration project.  Just need to get enough people involved and familiar with the abs and building with arch-makepkg.  It's easy actually.
