Hello all, 

Inspired by Ed's work at building up an Ubuntu install with Shared 
Records, I've packaged a distribution using the the rPath just-enough- 
OS linux distribution. The first draft is available as a VMware image 
from here: http://www.rpath.org/rbuilder/project/sharedrecords/builds . 

Noteworthy about this approach is that the same spec used to produce 
the VMware image can produce virtual machine images for other 
platforms: including QEMU, Xen, and Amazon EC2. At the moment, there 
are two administrator interfaces: the usual Tomcat interface at :8080, 
and the rPath Appliance Agent interface at :8003. Because the image is 
meant to be used as an appliance, the tomcat interface will be 
deprecated in favor of a custom plugin to the rPath interface. rPath 
manages system services, reboots, software updates and backups. 

The initial root password is blank. The administrator credentials for 
tomcat are admin/2 . For rPath use admin/password . 

This distribution includes the 1.0 release of the records, tokens, and 
annotations interfaces, at the usual endpoints (/records, /tokens, / 

Give it a try and let me know what you think.

Sorry about that re-broadcast. I meant to be writing an update about a
Shared Records instance running on EC2.

Which update is coming this afternoon.
