Ceph from a Gentoo packager's perspective
Ceph is a complex piece of software, written in multiple programming languages with dozens of dependencies, many of them bundled in the source tarball. This talk will go over some of the challenges presented in packaging Ceph. Much of the talk will be applicable to many distributions, as many have similar policies related to bundling of dependencies and internet access at build time. There are some challenges that are specific to Gentoo, such as supporting multiple Python releases at once.
