Starting in 1.2 the preferred way to install istio for kuberentes is via the new install repo (https://github.com/istio/installer). This breaks things up into multiple helm charts which is super helpful. However, I don’t see these charts pushed up anywhere:
$ curl https://storage.googleapis.com/istio-release/releases/1.2.0/charts/index.yaml|grep name: % Total % Received % Xferd Average Speed Time Time Time Current Dload Upload Total Spent Left Speed 100 1611 100 1611 0 0 13463 0 --:--:-- --:--:-- --:--:-- 13537 name: istio name: istio-cni name: istio-init
Will these be pushed up so we can easily install/require them via helm? From a production perspective, doing a git clone and using a custom bash script is really not ideal for deployments. It would also be helpful to have a roadmap somewhere indicating when the helm chart in the /install/kuberenetes/helm directory will be fully deprecated. I couldn’t find anything in the 1.2 release notes.
