Working For Production Not The Latest Version

I got a comment to my post on building Insight on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, reporting that a later version, github cloned, seems to have some issue with the GDBTK part of the building.

As I commented, I will try to get an idea of the issue, but also suggested to get a previous checkout, being a git repository just for that.

I still had no way to check the issue, that could also be related to the current state also in itself (the commit couldĀ  not represent a tagged release and will eventually be fixed later).

The general purpose of this post is to put on spot the difference between experimenting and looking for the creation of a production environment.

In the specific case, being the build based on an external coding, some probability that a later version could not build is there. Absolutely no critics to the kind person who indicated the problem starting after May 21st , 2016.
Just a chance to discuss this topic.

A winning team does not need to be changed. I am just back from a job in a large institution, where the Oracle database is 9i, YES.

At some time it will be replaced or upgraded, but meanwhile you are getting what you need, when going on their website. THAT’S ALL THAT MATTERS.

So it cannot be funny as experimenting, but if you have something working, bury that one in a VM, make an OVA and use it until it will no longer supply what you need.

I am also using an VM with ubuntu 11.04, and will be there probably for other 8 – 10 years.

Not funny, productive.
