this is correct, because SLE_10 is not public downloadable.


This should work, because it does download from the build service as fallback.

yes, we run only with 25% of our build hosts atm and lots of jobs have been

it should work via the api, please make a bugreport if it does not.

well, this will always depend on the load of the service. However, it does
make sense to do local builds always for working on a package. It will work
in the build service, when it does work locally (because the build should
happen in exactly the same way).

You found a bad time for starting ;) Usually we have more hardware running and
less jobs. However, we are still in development phase, so we do not guarantee
anything atm.

I hope we get some more hardware running during the week.
