The openSUSE Build Service (obs) is an open package and distribution development platform that provides a transparent infrastructure that allows developers to build for various major Linux distributions and architectures.
The public server build.opensuse.org is available for all open source developers to build packages for the most popular distributions incl. Debian, Fedora, Mandriva, openSUSE, Red Hat, SUSE Linux Enterprise and Ubuntu. It is also used to build the openSUSE distribution.
This is the first beta release of version 2.0. Version 2.0 is planned to be released on June 10th. We have updated the public server http://build.opensuse.org with the current code stream as part of our testing. We invite others running a build service to test the code and give feedback via the opensuse-buildservice mailing list and report bugs in bugzilla.
Beta1 is feature complete, new features will go in the next major release (release planned for end of 2010), we will concentrate on fixing bugs now. (more…)
