RPM for Bamboo 4.2


I've been searching for an RPM for Bamboo 4.2 Server and Agent but I haven't been able to find any official (or unofficial) packages. Could you please let me know where I could find this? Thanks,

Bamboo install is very straight forward.

wget http://www.atlassian.com/software/bamboo/downloads/binary/atlassian-bamboo-4.2.0.tar.gz

tar zxvf atlassian-bamboo-4.2.0.tar.gz

shut down your current instance,

replace symlink to the current instance (preferred method)

or rename it to the bamboo.old

mv downloaded bamboo to the old spot

if you have made any customization to the default installation, now you can recreate them to the updated version and rerun Bamboo

You may want now to create RPM, here it is a guide for that http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_to_create_an_RPM_package

I disagree. Anything that cannot be automated is NOT straight forward.

Perhaps "automating the automation" is asking too much, however, bamboo is very difficult to instrument from bare metal. I found Jenkins to be a much easier product to automate creation of jobs (or plans in bamboo case) which can easily reside in xml format in source control. I would really like to be able to instrument bamboo from bare metal to a running CI server and treat it as a deployed artifact like any application.
