Koozali SME v10 Contribs repo is now open

Koozali SME Server v10 has now reached Beta.

This means the system should be fairly stable and no major updates are expected.

We have ported a lot of v9 contribs over to v10, but they need extensive testing before they are considered suitable for release so they are in development repositories only.

Once we consider them ready we will move them to the v10 smecontribs repository.

In the meantime please be patient whilst we work on them.

If you want to test then please contact us via DM here or email and we can create an account on our Rocketchat instance where we can guide you (most of the heavy lifting conversations on development have been carried out on Rocket!)

Note installing development contribs can be EXTREMELY dangerous to your server. There are a few in there that will break your server completely with no chance of recovery so you must be exceptionally careful. One false command and that is it.

Hence although contribs are available in certain repositories (if you know enough, you know where they are), unless you really know what you are doing we ask you to talk with us about testing them, and that should be carried out ONLY on a test server.

We really don't want to be wasting the little time we have trying to fix servers that have been broken by development contribs.

They really are for TESTING ONLY. Once they have been released to the smecontribs repo they can be considered production ready.

Thanks.

OK, guys many hands make light work, there are a multitude of contribs that have been ported over to sme10, almost all are in the /smetest repo have a look here:
http://mirror.canada.pialasse.com/releases/testing/10/smetest/x86_64/RPMS/

Warning - Be aware you should never perform a full yum update with the /smetest and/or /smedev repos enabled it will almost certainly put your server in a state that may not be recoverable from..

There will be a bug that has been created as part of the porting process, we need any and all to grab the sme10beta install a test instance and load up a contrib, see if does what its supposed to do as per the basic wiki instructions, sme9 included, or at least looks like it does and lodge a comment in the Bug.

We would much prefer to only move those contribs that have been verified to the contribs repo.

So have some fun...please
