Hi Open Build Service folks,
I'm working on setting up some new web software for Debian packaging contributors. I heard about the Open Build Service here at the Desktop Summit, and I wondered:
Can we programmatically upload prospective Debian contributors' source packages to the Open Build Service, have OBS do a package build, and then run package quality tests on the resulting *.deb files?
Right now, we don't actually *compile* Debian contributors' source packages -- they just upload them to http://expo.debian.net/. It would be really great to add some code to that website that would use OBS to build the packages -- by doing that, we can show the package contributors if their packages build properly!
So this has two parts: First, is it technically posssible? And second, is this a use that would be okay?
