HPPA Builds

Berthold develops HPPA openSUSE distro as hobby project. He will try
build it in an own build service instance to learn the OBS code.
We may publish later a HPPA openSUSE snapshot and look how much
interesst is there in it.


Didn't the HPPA architecture end of life recently. I realize HP will
still sell parts, etc. but I don't think you can buy a new machine as
of a few months ago.

Doesn't seem like a logical choice to actually release for opensuse.

I guess the used market will be strong for a while longer.

As written this is a pure private hobby project. We as openSUSE or Novell
don't invest there really anything.

But adding a new architecture is a very good learning point for someone who
wants to dig into build service.

But yes it is quite unlikely that there will be ever a official openSUSE HPPA
release, except some community comes together and is pushing it.

btw, I learned also a lot when creating a SUSE 8.1 for mips internally only ;)
