18:49 jawatio Does anyone here know which version of Shibboleth SP is on RPM. Seeing the Ubuntu APT one is 2.5.2 :(
19:06 mckeanbs https://wiki.shibboleth.net/confluence​/display/SHIB2/NativeSPLinuxRPMInstall
19:31 jawatio But that doesnt state which version is published
19:33 mckeanbs Several versions. The latest one is 2.5.5 and is the default for CentOS7 for example
19:33 mckeanbs What is linked to from there shows you: http://download.opensuse.org/rep​ositories/security://shibboleth/
19:33 mckeanbs Then you look at the repo for your distro.
19:36 jawatio Okay I see now. We are using Ubuntu, but I can try to suggest a different distro for a newer version (if we run into problems with the 2.5.2 ubuntu version)
19:36 jawatio It goes through an automated process. so trying to do a build isnt a good option
19:39 jawatio Is there anywhere that speaks why Ubuntu is no longer being updated, or maybe a future update plan/schedule. Unsure why the latest isnt on one of the most used distros
19:44 mckeanbs It's likely an unofficial packaging effort to have it in Ubuntu. The only official sources are via source code or RPM
19:46 mckeanbs Looks like even the Debian Shibboleth sp has a newer version on Debian Jessie: https://packages.debian.org/​source/jessie/shibboleth-sp2
19:47 jawatio So the "libapache2-mod-shib2" package might not be from the Shibboleth team, but rather a 3rd party?
19:48 mckeanbs Yeah, of all likelihood
19:48 mckeanbs When I've seen Scott talk about new packages on the mailing list, it's always been RPM and source code, never .deb
19:50 jawatio Okay, thank you for the information
19:51 mckeanbs np, happy to help
19:55 jawatio left ##shibboleth
