[csw-users] large package update in testing/
bwalton at opencsw.org

I've placed a large set of packages in testing/ that are all
interrelated. This update will see $sysconfdir move from /opt/csw/etc
to /etc/opt/csw for all packages listed.
As many of these packages register themselves in one or more shared
catalog files, there isn't a good way to update this stack except as a
batch operation. The script at
http://mirror.opencsw.org/testing/update_xml_pkgs.sh should ease this
process for you as it removes packages in an order that won't break
dependencies (among this stack) and then re-adds them in the order they
were removed, taking into account packages you don't have on a
If you use any of these packages and have a chance to test the update
on a machine or two, I'd appreciate the feedback. They all seem to
work for me after the upgrade, but since it's a very large, invasive
change, I'd like wider testing before release.
