Re: [opensuse-buildservice] Re: bootstrapping/building a distro w/OBS
While Evergreen is a worthwhile effort, it's not the same as providing
an "open" or cloned version of an enterprise distro. If a 3rd party
vender has software, package, kernel module, whatever, for RHEL 6.5
you can be assured it's compatible on CentOS 6.5 since they're built
from the same source. The vender may choose not to support it, which
is understandable, but it should "work". I'm currently using a product
which provides encryption at rest and process based access controls,
they only support enterprise disto's, however they do support RHEL
clone like CentOS, Oracle Linux, etc. Also 3rd parties usually are
only going to support the enterprise distro's and not the numerous and
fast paced community distro's where things change quickly, though I
have spoken w/venders willing to do so.

Hello All,

Is there any documentation on how to build or bootstrap a distro with
OBS? Basically what I'd like to do is create an "open" version of
SLES, like Centos, because I feel it's something that is sorely
missing and would help widen the adoption of SuSE in environments
where users want the stability of an enterprise distribution but are
not necessarily willing to purchase a support agreement, with the
exception of "critical" systems.

Any information would be appreciated, and I'm more than willing to
take such a discussion "off-list" so as to not upset the powers that
be at SuSE. I know that SuSE puts a lot of effort into creating and
maintain SLE, and IMO openSUSE/SLES are the best distro's out there!
This is just something I've wanted to see for a very long time and
it's been bouncing around my head a lot recently so I figured I'd give
it to go ;-)

Thanks!

Hi
What is wrong with openSUSE Evergreen? I would guess that the folks
that are planning to maintain that would appreciate helpers?
