The following page links to all the downloads. Source is available as SRPMs in the respective OS distribution directories:


There are no Ubuntu packages here though.

To access via Git, clone from: 


The “git tag” command lists all the release tags; you can use git checkout <tag> to switch to the release of interest. You can also use “git branch -a” to list the branches and then checkout a branch. I use the tags, since I’m sometimes interested in specific builds.

    Right, I believe that the version of the client we where using before 
    the upgrade was certainly an older 2.x version, it might be worth seeing 
    if I can get that to compile on the current kernel.
    Humm upgrading the server is going to be a major pain in the ass, it was 
    setup before I joined the department and is basically a Redhat kernel 
    running on an Ubuntu 10.04 base. Ideally I'd want to migrate the servers 
    (we have separate OSS and MDS) to a supported platform, even if it isn't 
    Ubuntu, it's just more sane :)

    Is there a bare tarball** available of the official version's source? As 
    I'm working on Ubuntu, which is an un-supported platform IIRC, I'd have 
    to source compile.
    **or a way to check it out of the git repository.
