New Macaroni-Security Repository is here!

Saturday, Aug 12, 2023| Tags: macaroni, release, phoenix

Finally, it’s available the new macaroni-security repository!

Considering that the Funtoo release 1.4-prime is in EOL, we will use the macaroni-security repository to share security patches and updates of Browsers, Devs tools, and other packages meantime we rebooting Phoenix’s branch to Funtoo Next.

Due to this change, all users using Macaroni Phoenix MUST add the macaroni-security repository before executing any update.

$> luet repo update
$> luet i repository/macaroni-security
$> luet repo update
$> luet upgrade

The repository macaroni-security uses the new tree v2 which requires luet version 0.37.0 or greather.

This repository is also a good example for the users about how could create their repository starting from the Phoenix base layer and then using luet-build and luet-portage-converter to generate their packages.

We are really happy to announce that we are entered into the annual Docker-Sponsored Open Source Program.

What next?

Hereinafter, out hot points in our backlog:

  1. The refactor of luet-build go ahead and we will rename our PMS at the end of this refactor with the new name anise/anise-build.

  2. Considering that the Funtoo release 1.4-prime will be in EOL for the end of the year we will move soon both Eagle and Phoenix release to the new tree. We will share for 3 or 4 months the repository macaroni-phoenix-legacy and macaroni-eagle-legacy to permit users using the 1.4-prime to manage a more quiet migration but without updates.

  3. At the moment the luet-portage-converter doesn’t manage for the same package multiple versions. When the refactor of luet-build will be ended we will review this feature to support multiple version in the same repository (for example, having multiple release of Nodejs package).
