Comment 1 David O'Brien 2012-07-09 23:07:20 EDT
The user doc is not actually wrong ($releasever and $basearch are ok) but the repo is not publicly available for F17 yet.

Adam is going to address the repo/rpm availability issue.
Comment 2 Troy Dawson 2012-07-11 12:31:56 EDT
In my opinion, the documentation is needs to be updated so that Fedora users use the packages in Fedora and not our repo.
We need to eventually do this anyway, and it would be good to start now.
The rubygem-rhc in Fedora is usually only two days or so outdated, except when we add dependancies not in Fedora.

Side note about Fedora 17. The rhc rpm's that we made and put up on our openshift site are *not* compatable with Fedora 17.

We have been lucky up until Fedora 16.  It's really only luck that we've been able to use our RHEL6 rpm's with Fedora.  Most packages are not that compatible.
Comment 3 David O'Brien 2012-07-12 23:02:37 EDT
It's easy for us to update the instructions to use the Fedora repo and not https://openshift.redhat.com/app/repo/rpms/

We just need to know when and what.

afaik there is also a preference to use gem installs, and again, all we need is the info to add to the doc. We can patch and push any time.
Comment 4 Troy Dawson 2012-07-13 10:30:24 EDT
I really like the wording for Fedora and RHEL here


I don't know about the other sections, but I think if we put the Fedora and Red Hat section into the documentation, that would be great.
Comment 5 David O'Brien 2012-07-15 01:53:20 EDT
Re Comment 4, is it accurate?

"OpenShift is available as as an RPM in the YUM package manager on Fedora 16 and 17"

I thought the original bug was about F17 rpm files not being available.

Not sure what you mean about this bit:
"I don't know about the other sections, but I think if we put the Fedora and Red Hat section into the documentation, that would be great."

If by "the documentation" you mean what's on docs.redhat.com then it's already there, and has been for months.

If you want to change what's in these sections, pls raise a BZ.
