I would like to propose two changes in our development enviroments.

svn to gitorious

openSUSE is currently consolidating its svn/git/... systems to gitorious.
I would like to propose that we move the entire openSUSE svn from, including the Build Service also to this place.

As a side effect, this would be a switch from subversion to git. git is more feature rich, but less obvious to use. Also the account at gitorious will not be the same as in the rest in the infrastructure. So it will be a bit harder to verify if user X at gitorious is really user Y in bugzilla/OBS/....

Are there concerns in doing this ?

i would rather maintain our own svn instead of switching to git. but
that might be just me.

If you want an improvement, break up the source in OBS, the server, and osc, and other clients are all under the same 'trunk', but are released on different schedules. It would make more sense to move the 'trunk' under each individual rpm's source. That could also eliminate the packaging of osc, which is under, into the OBS server tarball, which is rooted at For our internal OBS instance I have two copies of osc since one is under obs-server and one under osc as it's easier to do vendor drops with osc having its own trunk and branches.

Mailing list re-org

We have basically two mailing lists regarding OBS atm.
One is this opensuse-buildservice ml, which is intended for developer questions and for reporting issues with the instance.

opensuse-packaging is intended for topics how to use the OBS and general packaging questions.

I would like to propose another buildservice-admin mailing list, esp. for people who run a build service instance.

An open question is, if we should make the -admin ml world readable or a closed and invatation only ml. The later would have the advantage that we could use it also as reporting address for potential security issues.

What are your opinions about this ?

not more mailinglists. if you want to make this list more focused on
development and less using the obs. thats fine.

but please not yet another list
