Continuous Integration

CI has been added to materialdecoration and the build issues caused by qtwayland are fixed nowadays, meaning that the package now builds again.

OSTree tools

ostree-image-creator and ostree-upload were rewritten with Go, which is way easier to develop with compared to Rust.

For this kind of applications, Rust didn’t give any advantage at all.

ostree-image-creator was also redesigned: it’s now a tool that builds any kind of image you want from a declarative recipe.

image-manager now shares code with ostree-image-creator and ostree-upload, for instance all the code to parse JSON and token authentication, and the client was rewritten in Go.

Here you can take a look at Liri OS live image recipe.

OSTree repositories

OSTree configuration was revamped and the repository is now GPG signed. Every night a GitHub workflow builds and uploads the repository.
