Wanted: Build Service Contributors

January 15th, 2009 by

Have you ever wanted to join Build Service development, but you had no idea what to implement? Would you like a real opportunity to learn Ruby on Rails? This is a great time to start!

The OBS developers have collected smaller projects on this wiki page. These projects are ideal for anyone new to OBS development. All you need is a local copy of the Web Client, which can easily be deployed on your development system.

Most of the jobs will enable functionality which is already implemented, but not available in the web client. The web client is great for browsing the content and the status of the projects. These improvements will help developers to get a better overview about their builds and sources.

We’re happy to mentor new developers and contributors. You can get help on the mailing list or on the IRC channel to help with development.

And last, but not least, contributors will receive an openSUSE t-shirt, and SVN access if your patch gets accepted!

Happy Developing.

    One can also contribute to lbuild, the nice tiny tool from mls and lnussel to build your packages locally without the need for any big Apache/Rails installation.

  3. This looks great, I’m very interested in helping!

    This sounds like something I can do that would be worthwhile for the cause of openSUSE

  5. I would like to know what was involved, as I feel like an end user and would like to be a contributor in some way
