on behalf of Adrian I am happy to annouce our roadmap for the upcoming
openSUSE Buildservice development here:

It outlines the development targets until Q4 2008.

We're happy to get your feedback,

One very essential thing I missed in your roadmap. This is i18n and l10n.

- How to handle translations?
- Will it be possible to add translations for SPEC files, package
  descriptions, ...?
- When openSUSE moved to BS servcie completely, how will the suse
  translation effor be integrated?
- How can Buildservice translation (if they come) be integrated with
  upstream translations.
- How to forward translations upstream ...

I already had some trouble regarding this topic with main distribution and my own packages so I know this is a major topic.

Currently the buildservice is not 1.0, so I accept many things, but a final product also needs a nearly 100% translation support.

- All buildservice parts must be translatable.
- All packages must be translatable if supported upstream.
- All packahe meta information must be translatable.

A sidenote: It seems rpmlint has translation problems at the moment as well. It seems it checks only current language entries. To get it right, it needs to check every included language.
