Summary0005469: deploy taler-auditor-httpd
DescriptionWe need to deploy the (new) auditor's HTTPD. It should run on auditor.[test/demo] The "/" page itself can/should be hijacked to continue to point to the current page.

Furthermore, before calling 'taler-auditor-sign', we must now run 'taler-auditor-exchange' to add the exchange's master public key and base-URL to the auditor's database.

Please ask me if any of this is unclear.

I just checked the code, and 'taler-auditor-sign' has the "-m" option that's there for the sole purpose of fetching a exchange's key.

Are you sure we have to call that 'taler-auditor-exchange' tool anyway?

Yes, that's the only one that adds (or removes) the exchange's URL and master public key to the auditor's database.

11212f1 @deployment.git adds this invocation.


right now, we are mixing the exchange's and auditor's
deployment; that means that in one script we create the exchange
keys, get them signed by the auditor, and also register the
exchange key+url at the auditor. This will never happen IRL,
but I assume it is okay to get the demo running.

Given that "/" is also served (statically taking content from auditor.git), this one can be closed now.

Well, in reality those steps will have to be interleaved properly as part of the business processes between exchange and auditor. Doing so in the deployment script is fine.

Reopening since the 'demo' side doesn't have the auditor deployed yet (what's just missing are a few Nginx rules); this is because we don't want to touch it until next release.

The auditor page is now served, although clicking on 'add auditor' leads to nothing.

Also the BB worker that builds nightly PDF-reports is setup, although the "tex" compilation into PDF breaks in the following way:

This breakage was already observed in the test deployment, and got a bug filed: 0005742.

So strictly speaking, this one is solved.
