Congrats to the team on getting this integration
rolling. Quick question:
Since OBS already builds images for various
environments, we will first add a new image building GUI to OBS. This combined solution
be delivered as “SUSE Studio Express”.
Currently when I go to https://studioexpress.opensuse.org/
I just see a landing page with
links to the OBS image templates and some
instructions. But I don't see a new GUI or visual way of putting together a custom
image, except for the "Edit Kiwi" section. Is the full GUI
And what about external repositories? It appears that non-OBS RPM repos added to Studio
Express fail unless they have the `obs:/` scheme
address. So that means no adding external repos such as Packman? (As a matter of fact, it
looks like none of my repos from the SuseStudio import
work, even the openSUSE OSS ones, since they use an `http://` URL scheme.)
Also, with the "KIWI Image Templates for openSUSE Leap 42.3", which would I use
for a live ISO image that can run on physical hardware? All the
current templates seem to be only for virtualization systems.
other features are not on the roadmap like test
I'll sure miss this one. As the developer of GeckoLinux with no less than seventeen
(17) different ISO editions, the test drive was the single
biggest time saver that allowed me to test configurations. It even had a fascinating
feature where you could see what files were getting changed
during the test drive session, complete with diffs of the changes, and then you could
hand pick which modified files to overlay in the final
ISO. I learned so much about how and where the different desktop environments save their
settings thanks to this feature.
I've learned to really appreciate SuseStudio despite all of its quirks and
intricacies. I hope that the OBS / Studio Express feature set can be
eventually improved to gradually come close to parity. SuseStudio, you will be missed!
