Delivering Juju 2.0 into Ubuntu

Registered by Antonio Rosales

Regular, well QA'ed releases of Juju Core into Ubuntu Saucy, frequent backports.

Juju Core is the way forward for Juju users; we need to ensure that we are dropping new point releases into Ubuntu Saucy (and other distribution methods such as PPA/Backports) so that point releases get increased exposure, avoiding a single final late drop revision into the release.

Jane is trying out Juju Core; she is able to pull new point releases from Ubuntu Saucy/Backports whilst she's kicking the tyres and trying stuff out.

Dave is a Juju Core developer; he gets good bug feedback on new point releases from users during the Juju Core and Ubuntu dev cycle improving the overall quanlity of the final drop of Juju Core into Saucy.

Juju Core/Ubuntu Server Team can push out a monthly point release.

Juju Core introduces a backwards incompatible change.




Ubuntu 13.10 includes the latest release of Juju Core (2.1 or whatever).
