Hi Jesse,

This was sent to the list in July (the link to the .iso file is in the 
last section of the e-mail):

The build service site is a little labyrinth-like, to see the actual
binary packages you have to navigate to repositories, choose one, and
then Go to download repository. For example Debian 6.0[1] and Fedora
15[2]. These are the only distributions that are currently supported -
what is breaking the others is mostly non-existent or out of date
dependencies. I've also been building the packages on an Ubuntu PPA[3]
but I've not tested the install on ubuntu yet.

Ah, yes, the web bits would be a good one to split off, as that
removes quite a few dependencies if they're not needed.

Getting the packages officially accepted is the best outcome, but I
don't know how doable it is. I will defineitely start talking to the
Debian/Fedora people over the next few weeks to see what we can do in
this direction.

Thanks, that's sorted now. I've uploaded an iso[4]. The linux account
is opensrf/opensrf and the evergreen account is admin/livecd. I've
been mostly testing it using unetbootin[5] to load it onto a usb
stick. Ultimately, I hope for it to fit onto a single CD, but atm I
still have another 18MB to shave off before it does.
