Each and everbody has only a limited amount of time. I can't do
everything, so I have a clear mark what I can and will do and what not. I
care for packages, not for whole distributions.
I do a lot for
openSUSE for many years now, but I have no time to learn a
completely new topic how to create a installation system from scratch. So if
we can get a state, where an installation medium is available which matches
current OBS, then I'll help to port some of the stuff and fix problems.
Thats when all the work would be done. without additional helping
hands to get there, we have little chance to succeed.
Huh. I'm pretty sure that there is lots of work to be done when an initial
image is available which links to OBS. An bootable image probably needs
only 5% of all the software in factory and that's only a small part of OBS
I don't expect a fancy powerful system, but only a WORKING one, where I
can install additional stuff when available.
the OBS build
stuff actually should be exported to the download directories.
Currently all the stuff available for download has nothing to do with the
stuff in the build setup. Everything is totally mangled.
Well, it is hidden behind (sometimes not really well documented) APIs
or AHIs (Application Human interfaces). In many cases one has to ask
somebody who wrote the code on what is going on. Thats just how it is,
I don't want to learn any of these details. I want one image downloadable
and installable, where I can add OBS repos like for normal x86. From there
on it is fixing packages and installing.
Currently I can neither do that for our Raspberry Pi, nor for the ARM7
Beagle board we bought recently. ARM for openSUSE seems completely
contains too much stuff which is unusable and/or
does not match the OBS stuff (thus seems outdated :-).
