IUS Package Wish List

Requesting New Package Additions

New packages are added to IUS all the time. To request a new package addition, first do an Advanced Search to ensure the package hasn’t already been requested and rejected in the past. To perform an advanced search select all status’, add your package name to the search box, and add ‘wishlist’ to the tags section. If the package has not been requested in the past, create a bug in our LaunchPad project with the following information.

Subject:

WL: <package_name> <major_version>

Body:

DESCRIPTION: <package_description>
REASON: Why you want the package in 100 words or less

Extra Options:

Tags: wishlist

It is important to add the tag ‘wishlist’ so that it gets listed under the IUS Package Wish List.

Example:

WL: ruby 1.9

----------------------------------------------------------------------
DESCRIPTION: Ruby is the interpreted scripting language for quick and easy
object-oriented programming.  It has many features to process text
files and to do system management tasks (as in Perl).  It is simple,
straight-forward, and extensible.

REASON: Our company relies heavily on ruby 1.9.x and are looking to
standardize all of our production applications on it.
