Cierra el respositorio quadrat4.de (Synology)

Uno de los repos más famosos para NAS Synology, Quadrat4, famoso por ofrecer una aplicación que permite realizar el BootStrap de forma sencilla y rápida entre otras, sin necesitar realizar la operación vía conexión SSH y a través de consola contra nuestro NAS, ha anunciado el cierre del proyecto y que no habrán actualizaciones para DSM 5.0 y posteriores, de hecho ha confesado haber vendido su antiguo DS412+ y haber migrado el almacenamiento a un pc convencional.


Sin duda se trata de una mala noticia para aquellos usuarios a los que les da respeto las conexiones SSH, aunque a la práctica es algo simple y versátil es importante ir con ojo de lo que podemos tocar o modificar.

Así muere uno de los repos imprescindibles para un sistema Synology, solo nos queda agradecerle el trabajo realizado a su desarrollador y confiar que en un futuro vuelva a trastear un equipo de este fabricante para poder ofrecernos nuevas aplicaciones y alternativas. Os dejo la nota aclaratorio publicada en su blog:

Well, two years ago i bought myself a Synology NAS DS412+.
A few weeks later i started to go deeper into the system and installed myself the IPKG installer following a wiki tutorial.
After that i was fucked up by the process and i decided to build a one click installer to simplify the sh**t.
Again a few weeks later i was ready to launch my first and own DSM 3rd party repo with packages available for the most available NAS Systems by Synology.
I built the spk files based on DSM 4.0 and did never any update to my own NAS because i used my NAS very heavily later.
Since DSM 4.3 was released, more and more people told me about installation problems with my installer, so i removed installation for DSM 4.3 and above.
Now, nearly 2 years later i have sold my DS412+ and migrated my storage solution to a normal pc system. In fact: i have no longer any available DSM system where i could test or develop new or updated IPKG installer packages.
Meanwhile i got roundabout 1000 emails from people asking about updates. NO.
Why?
I spent a lots of hours for fun and for my own research as i wrote the packages and the package homepage. So lets call it an experiment.
I hope that all of you accept this decision.
For all of you who loved my package and it was helpful, i ‘ve added a PayPal donate button to the repo page.
Maybe in the future there are a few dollars to buy a develop NAS to reactivate the package for DSM5 and the newer models. ;)
