Re: [opensuse-buildservice] Bootstrapping a private OBS instance

Hello all,
I installed a private OBS instance for a customer, but I'm having a couple of
problems bootstrapping it.

I followed section 5.2.2 from here:
and imported the SUSE:SLE-12:GA project successfully. I did place the :full
directory with the binary RPMs stripped of their versions as instructed, but
a repository rescan only gives me this:

I can't seem to make it recognize the binary packages at all. Any ideas? If I
add this repository to my home dir, I only get "unresolvable" errors if I try
to compile a package.

BTW, if anyone wants, I wrote a bash script to import the source packages
gradually (e.g. only the packages missing locally) from one OBS to another.
The method suggested in the docs will eventually duplicate revisions locally
if the process is stopped somewhere in the middle. And it does happen if you
don't have the same user groups for a package, for example.

hm, why don't you build against another repo first?
You could for example build against the sle 12 repo of

So you do not need to import binaries at all.

Later on, you can remove the link to the repository to become self contained.
