charm-tools (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

With the release of Juju 2.0 a new charm-tools is planned to be released with this. charm-tools 2.0 is a huge jump in features from the 1.0.0 in the archive. It also becomes a suite of plugins to the new charm command being developed in Juju 2.0 - In general it brings about bug fixes and a new set of commands:

 * Ability to build charm using layers
 * Enhanced charm proof
 * Support for creating Windows charms
 * Removal of antiquated and broken commands

Because charm-tools relies on the new `charm` command being added, which is dependent on Juju 2.0 (which has a FFe) this needs to be held until the new Juju 2.0 and Charm command is released.

charm-tools 2.0 requires some NEW packages as well:


I've done a base review and tidy of the packages that have been provided in a PPA to-date:


They mostly sniff OK; the py3 support is incomplete in stuf and otherstuf (due to missing py3 in python-parse) but thats probably fixable if required by the release team for Xenial.

Only blocker I can see is that python-stuf is licensed BSD - but not specifically to any version of the BSD license and it can be a bit vague.

Actually stuf is ok as well - it has a LICENSE.txt with full BSD license definition.

python-libcharmstore and python-theblues are also required...

James Page (james-page) wrote :

Spit and polish applied to libcharmstore and theblues as well; theblues lacks clear licensing information - Marco is working to resolve that...

James Page (james-page) wrote :


Once the licensing issue is resolved with theblues, I'm willing to sponsor these packages; however you will need to get a release team approval before I can do that (which will also required finding an archive-admin with some time to spare to review the 6 new source packages required to support charm-tools 2.0).

theblues is licensed LGPLv3 just had upstream sort this: https://github.com/juju/theblues/blob/develop/LICENSE

This is conceptually part of Juju 2.0, so the FFE for that should apply to charm tools too. +1

I've uploaded all packages apart from updates to charm and charm-tools, which Marco is just finishing off.

I don't think the Juju 2.0 FFe has actually been approved, has it? That's bug 1545913.

it hasn't
