Galera 4 now available also in Debian Buster and Stretch backports



I just wanted to let you know that the latest Galera 4 release is
available now also in the Debian Buster 'buster-backports' and Debian
Stretch 'stretch-backports-sloppy' as official Debian.org packages
that went through the whole Debian QA system

Status page: https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/galera-4

>From earlier Galera 4 was already available in Debian unstable and
testing, and Ubuntu Focal (20.04 LTS) and Groovy:

Backports for Ubuntu Bionic and Xenial have also been prepared, but
not approved for by the Ubuntu Backports team yet. If you want to

I have spent a lot of time on Galera packaging this spring, and
currently there are 0 bugs filed against Galera 3 in Debian
and in Ubuntu (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/galera-4).
Same goes for Galera 3, zero bugs open (at
and https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/galera-3).

All of my packaging improvements have also been merged back to
upstream at https://github.com/codership/galera, so the situation is
quite nice right now.

A big thanks to Teemu who reviewed and merged my patches!
