is there a problem with the new webmin/usermin packages that is keeping them from going into the repo? or just a lack of resources problem?
webmin 1.760 and usermin 1.670 do not show up in the virtualmin repositories (yum or apt), but are in the regular webmin repository. webmin was released 6/22 and usermin looks to be the same date (but no news blurb on the main web site).
since all the *min packages come from one company, i assume that things will all update around the same time. since that hasn’t happened, should we assume there is a problem? is there some place to look to find out what might be going on?
i’m surprised that there haven’t been any replies to this from virtualmin or any other community members.
i think the last time webmin/usermin weren’t pushed into the virtualmin repos, there was some regression issue that had to be fixed first. but this time it seems like a much longer time since release and also there is no feedback i have found indicating why there might be a problem.
It’s just a mistake – Joe is looking into what’s preventing it from showing up in certain repositories, that should be corrected soon.
what would be a better way to raise this issue if i see it again? i’m using the gpl version, so i try to be patient, but after more than a week with no responses at all, i start to get nervous about security issues, etc.
Posting a response to Joe’s announcement is perfect, such as the one here:
We do know about the issue, and Joe is working on it. Sorry for the delay.
If there are any security issues corrected by a release, though would be mentioned in the Changelog Joe posted… it doesn’t look like there were any this time around.
However, in a pinch, you could always grab a .rpm or .deb from Webmin.com, which is the same as the ones posted here.
But Joe will have that up soon
usermin 1.670 still hasn’t shown up in the virtualmin repos.
