Of course, but I can do that without OBS as well. I thought OBS bridges
the gap between deb and rpm distributions a bit by making it easier to
build for both types, but I was wrong there at least for the current
Right. OBS can't "cross create" package build descriptions for different
distros, even rpm based distros are different.
Ok, thanks for the answers so far. I think I first try to build some simple
packages for Ubuntu/Debian for testing purposes and to get a feeling for it
and afterwards import that stuff to the OBS.
I could imagine that it is possible to do that.
Finding out the
similarities for a global xml package build description and handling the
differences with different xml namespaces. Creating the different files for
different build environments with xslt then is just a matter of time and
testing ;) At least that would be a feature what I would like to see in the
Yes, that idea would be awesome: just entering all needed information into an
xml and let the OBS do the rest.
Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and beat
you with experience.
