Porting PKI to Debian
This page serves to track the overall effort to port Dogtag to Debian. Specifically, we would like to port Dogtag 10.x to Debian. We have no plans to port the 9.x version of Dogtag.
Dogtag has a large number of dependencies, which are not all packaged for Debian. Packaging all of the dependencies is the first step in porting Dogtag to Debian.
Timo Aaltonen worked on porting dependencies in Summer 2012 and generated the following list of dependencies that needs to be packaged:
codehaus-parent keytool-maven-plugin maven-help-plugin maven-idea-plugin maven-jarsigner-plugin maven-jxr maven-source-plugin geronimo-parent-poms geronimo-annotation plexus-mail-sender maven-release plexus-resources maven-checkstyle-plugin maven-pmd-plugin maven-anno-plugin maven-reporting-api maven-changes-plugin maven-deploy-plugin apache-james-project javamail base64coder gdata-java sonatype-oss-parent forge-parent mojo-parent maven-plugin-build-helper relaxngcc xsom glassfish-fastinfoset jvnet-parent glassfish-jaxb-api glassfish-dtd-parser stax-ex istack-commons rngom glassfish-jaxb maven-jaxb2-plugin jboss-parent jandex jboss-specs-parent jboss-annotations jetty-parent jetty-toolchain jetty-version-maven-plugin scannotation snakeyml resteasy
This list needs to be reviewed, as the dependencies have likely changed in the last year!
The Dogtag code and packaging will likely need some changes for Debian. The specifics still need to be determined, but path differences between distributions and deployment of servlets to Tomcat are areas that will most likely require some work. This section should be filled in as we do the investigation.
