I just have activated my account on and I wonder
where do I find information about creating packages with buildservice?
Thanks in advance!

Short answer: there is no tutorial, you are supposed to know how to make rpms
before you apply for your account (in order to make it useful).

Longer answer: You should read the resources available on how to make RPM
packages (good sourrce is: - Maximum RPM
book or - Fedora's RPM
guide and, of course - SUSE packaging
conventions) and afterwards you can learn how to use the splendid
console "osc" tool to ease package maintaining and to transform it to
something quite similar to a version control system

Constructive answer: Since there is no real tutorial on how to make packages
using openSUSE build service, maybe we could make a tutorial on that topic.
RPM Max is quite obsolete, there is Fedora's RPM tutorial which is much more
up-to-date, but there is nothing more available. Whoever thinks that (s)he is
capable to do something like that could answer this message and then we could
all start a new page (or whatever)
where we whould have a good tutorial on how to make RPM packages using
openSUSE build service. I will help as much as I know and as much as I have
enough of free time, as long as I am not the only one involved (since I don't
think I have enough free time to maintain such a tutorial myself).
