1. If the source service runs correctly, there is no visible log. The

source service support in webui has been removed and yet be reimplemented

Is there some kind of schedule for re-implementing it?

6. The recompress service could be used to compress the tarball from
tar_scm, but it takes a fixed incoming filename, without wildcards.
This doesn't work when tar_scm is generating a tarball filename which
has a version number encoded in it, which version number is not known
at the time the _service file is written.

No, it does not

osc cat OBS:Server:Unstable/build/_service

Ok, I tried that example and it worked! The difference seems to be
that I was using

<param name="file">novaprova*.tar</param>

instead of

<param name="file">*.tar</param>

Thanks :)

8. For the version number, I wanted to use a timestamp in ISO8601
basic format to day precision, i.e. "20131120" for 20 November 2013.
The closest I can get is to use %ci as the versionformat in the
tar_scm service, but this doesn't quite work. Git gives extended
format to second precision
with timezone, e.g.
2013-11-20 10:06:35 -0800. The tar_scm script tries to clean this
up, but the result still has useless information I don't want and
spaces which break the other services.

tar_scm can be configured to use different version schemes via the
parameter. Check the _service file above for an example.

Yep, I know about versionformat, I was using it. What I didn't
realise was that git log was being run with --date=short so that %ad
and %cd would actually do exactly what I wanted. Thanks for the

Also, what's a good way to kick off an OBS build from a GitHub webhook?

using tokens and the OBS github plugin. I will document and blog about it

I'm very much looking forward to that blog post.

Thanks for all your help!
