Re: Stable and Development Trunks


Just to clear up some issues I've ran into as well...I'm using a
deployment script for my internal testing, which leverages
'ppa:nova-core/trunk' so I can access the latest nova-* packages.  I know
at one time there was 'ppa:nova-core/ppa', and this was considered the
'stable' area for nova-* packages.  This PPA is no longer is use, but
there is a 'ppa:nova-core/release'.  If I'm out doing a demo somewhere, I
should use this PPA?  Is this being kept up-to-date?  Unfortunately
relying on trunk for packages has landed me in some situations where
things just don't work :(  I'm not against pulling stable source, but I
like my three minute script to do all the work for me :D
