We've been using ceph on Debian for several years now, and would really like seeing
official packages for buster.
We recently resorted to building our own Luminous packages for buster (based on the Ubuntu
packages), due to the fact that:
* We've already upgraded our clusters to 12.2.12 , and the debian.org
* The official ceph packages for stretch are built against libcurl3, which has been
removed in buster in favor of libcurl4 .
Sage stated last year that Luminous and Nautilus (and possibly Mimic) packages for buster
should be provided at some point
), and we really
hope that this decision hasn't been reverted - a lot of Debian users are looking
forward to being able to upgrade their clusters to a newer release.
We also believe having official Luminous packages will allow most Debian users who've
kept their systems up-to-date to have a clean upgrade path.
We are aware of croit's Nautilus packages for buster and have played around with them
(thanks!), but would rather go with official packages in our production clusters,
preferably built against python3 (for bonus points ;) ). We're also undecided
regarding whether we should go straight to Nautilus, mainly due to the fact Mimic seems
like the more stable choice for the time being.
We'd be happy and willing to assist in any way we can.
