This is just to raise the question to simply initiate
a discussion, why not have AlpineLinux on OBS too?
On the positive side, it should be relatively easy to adapt since it is really rather
similar to Arch, which is already supported on OBS, but simpler.
On the other hand, unlike Arch, it also has 6 month releases that are supported for 2
years. I do appreciate those would accumulate over time. It also has a lot more
architectures supported. So I do appreciate that it could also become a maintenance time
sink in OBS.
Also, I have no sense of the real size of the AlpineLinux using community, and I suspect
most use it from the docker and container perspective, which is a valid and potential
community that could benefit from OBS. In my particular case, I do use Alpine very
broadly, and specifically for headless arm/IoT devices.--
IIRC it uses it's own package format, right?
You could add the support following this HOWTO:
