OpenSuse Build Service
 Our Goals
- to allow freedom for developers to develop;
- to provide a build service and SDK
- to work with the core distro as much as possible
- to provide excellent quality assured applications for our "app store";
- to extend the core distro with a community supported Surrounds area for libraries and packages that are depended upon by more than one application.
Lets set out some basics about the OBS.
- It's a build system. You put source on it and say "use this repository" and it builds a minimal SDK-like chroot using the deb/rpms it finds in that repository
- It has packages - a package corresponds to a tarball and a spec/dsc
- It has projects - a project is like a directory with packages
- When a package is built it is 'published' from the project where it was uploaded into a corresponding repository (which can be used to build other projects)
- The repositories can also be used by devices to download binary packages.
The 'trick' then, is to set up a structure of projects that we can use to support the publishing and sharing activities that we need.
Some tasks needed to get the OBS running:
- OBS Installation - a detailed guide on how the system was setup.
- Application QA Process on the OBS - a proposal
- Setting up Chinook - WIP
- Setting up Fremantle - WIP.
- Setting up MeeGo - WIP.
- Setting up cross-building - started, not imported yet
- An OBS Autobuilder queue - not started
- Reporting - not started
- Task page for Maemo OBS
