Unclear download and Install instructions


I expected to find instructions on building/deploying from source on the Downloads page. However I can only find images.

It seems I am not the only person asking this as can be seen from How to properly install manageiq from source on ubuntu I am interested to know how the images are generated/produced.

http://manageiq.org/download/openstack/ mentions the image upload to glance as "ManageIQ-devel". Does not fill me with confidence to deploy this as production. I would expect this to be called the community image instead…


@simaishi @jprause @Fryguy Where are the instructions/code to build appliance from scratch?


Instruction to run from source: https://github.com/ManageIQ/guides/blob/master/developer_setup.md

Instruction on generating images: https://github.com/ManageIQ/manageiq-appliance-build/blob/master/README.md


Although it might be helpful to include this on the Download page as an alternative strategy…

What about the Ruby version on CentOS? Is there a long-term strategy as currently a version manager is needed.

I went ahead and fixed the ManageID-devel naming. https://github.com/ManageIQ/manageiq.org/issues/262
