I am afraid you might've misunderstood me. I am aware that OpenSUSE does provide LXC,
but I meant is there work being done for OBS, so that OBS build host would use LXC to
separate the worker build environment itself from the build host (so that the package
being built cannot modify the build host). To me, it seems that currently OBS supports Xen
and KVM. Looking at /etc/sysconfig/obs-worker, OBS_VM_TYPE can be auto, xen, kvm or none.
Could support for LXC be easily implemented?
When you said "we support", I understood that you meant OpenSUSE. However, I was
talking specifically about OBS.

I am doing my Master's thesis on extending OBS to the cloud. Seeing that Amazon Web
Services uses Xen for
virtualization (and thus does not support Xen/KVM inside it),
and that building without a sandboxed environment
is not safe, OpenVZ and LXC would seem promising. There's also much talk about using
these technologies in AWS,
so I would see it possible.
We support XEN, KVM and LXC atm. Check the sources here :
However, amazon EC2 is not support because the XEN support requires
currently control over the Dom0
