DISABLED: Daily Upstream Builds

PPA description

IMPORTANT: this is ppa disabled

I tracked the usage along the last 6 months and due to not really being used the effort to maintain the builds will be stopped.
I'll keep the repos, recipies and everything else around if anyone wants to pick it up, but as of 3Q2017 the automated builds are stopped.


This PPA contains daily package builds of several upstream virtualisation projects. In many cases, users experience a bug in a package in a released version of Ubuntu, which happens to be fixed upstream. These builds are intended to provide us a simple mechanism to confirm the existence of a bug in an upstream project, or, rather to confirm that such a bug is fixed.

Please note that these builds should *never* be used for production purposes. They are substantially stripped and unsupported. Also, the builds periodically break due to upstream commits which are outside of our control.

To test the qemu package, for instance:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-virt/virt-daily-upstream
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install qemu
# do your testing
$ sudo apt-get install ppa-purge
$ sudo ppa-purge ppa:ubuntu-virt/virt-daily-upstream

Often apparmor profiles are out of sync upstream, so for the testing you might consider switching that to complain (better than disabling):
$ apt install apparmor-utils
$ aa-complain /usr/sbin/libvirtd

To build or work on the recipes on your own you can clone the -daily branches and on them run e.g.:
$ git-build-recipe --allow-fallback-to-native qemu-daily/qemu.recipe qemu-workdir
That will give you .dsc/.changes to work with as usual.
