Right. OBS can't "cross create"
package build descriptions for different
distros, even rpm based distros are different.
The funny thing about this is, that one idea was (when I remember
correctly my chat with Adrian last year) that there is a plan to create
something like this with xml written build description (not the build
configurations for different distros on the obs server itself).
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 future, even thinking about Mark Shuttleworths talk during Akademy
2007 (Listen and Watch it here
spare bandwidth you can find it as well on my server:
Is this dead? http://en.opensuse.org/Abstract_Package_Build_Description
It was a Google SoC project, but it is not really usable yet. And it lacks
someone who continues to work on it ..
However, the idea to create build descriptions from a template set for all
distrobutions does exist since a while and there where also approaches to
implement it, but none of them is really usable yet AFAIK.
I think this idea is taking place in a lot of OSS heads for quite a few
I would like to work together with people who want that.
"People who want that"....yeah, this is a big problem. As long as people
think (which I did in the last couple of years) that distros are not
working together, this plan won't be realized.
So, let's start with work on inter-distro-work regarding package
management. I think I'm able to provide some infos about debian and rpm
