Is it true that openSuSE has discontinued support for rebuilding
rpms for their systems with 'rpmbuild'?

When did that change go through? That seems like a major break from
previous compatibility...?

No, we have not discontinued it.
We however recommend strongly using "build" (or others of our chroot setup
using builds) to get a well-defined chroot build setup.


Recommending build instead of rpmbuild has some impact on standardization efforts... For instance, the LF Driver Backport Workgroup is working to create a standard spec file which can be used to build kernel module rpms on multiple distributions. It is problematic to make the standard spec file support build as well as rpmbuild. Thoughts?

Thx,

Ann
