Hello,

Martin Mohring írta:
would you mind that we activate the compilation of the OBS itself (openSUSE:Tools*) for ppc targets, so the ppc users can grab it there without problem? How far have you come with putting the ppc binaries of the wished distros into build repos?
Is it already available somewhere, or I still need to build it myself?

If I have to build it, which version would you recommend for PPC?
http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/openSUSE:/Tools/openSUSE_11.0/
or one of openSUSE:/Tools:/Devel/ or openSUSE:/Tools:/Unstable/ ? The last two don't have a bundled ruby. Does it mean, that I can use the one bundled with openSUSE 11.0, or I need to build that too? If yes, from what sources?

PowerPC support is now activated and completely checked into subversion, and even selectable via the Webclient.

What is the difference between:

openSUSE:Tools
openSUSE:Tools:Unstable
openSUSE:Tools:Devel

Answer:

openSUSE:Tools:Unstable contains prereleases of the OBS, whereas openSUSE:Tools:Devel are development versions for completely new version.
E.g. openSUSE:Tools:Unstable is prereleased, but frozen (the lzma inside for example links to openSUSE:11.0 sources and do not change anymore).
openSUSE:Tools:Devel can also link to openSUSE:Factory packages, where the new versions of needed packages are integrated, tested and are fed back to openSUSE:Factory.

Both, openSUSE:Tools:Unstable and openSUSE:Tools:Devel repositories sit on top of the openSUSE:Tools project, so they use the ruby packages from openSUSE:Tools (and also the others only present in openSUSE:Tools).
