As requested by darix, I'm emailing oS-buildservice to ask for a new osc
feature - capability to build a whole project (eg. KDE:KDE4:UNSTABLE:Desktop)
with one single command.

Currently there is only possible to do things like

Which restricts builds to a given PRJCT:PGK so if one wants to build a whole
project the following won't work:

With my osc feature request something like it would be possible.

For what I have understood, darix pointed out that to do that some API
changes/exposing would be needed or so, which seems to concern him a little.

Hmm I think we need one additional api call to retrieve the buildorder of a
This new call could look like this:


Then we could upload all spec files to the backend, the backend parses all
specs and calculates the buildorder. Calculating the buildorder isn't too hard
but the real problem is how to transfer all the spec files to the backend?

I attached a potential method to calculate the buildorder (it retrieves the
spec files and other needed data in one big xml file) (note: this method isn't
complete, it should just show that the whole thing shouldn't be too hard to

So once the backend generates a buildorder xml file we can start to tweak
the clients to build a complete project.

Any opinions?:)

- Build service/osc team, what do you thing about this request? Do you thing
it's possible to implement? Any limitations?
- Users, please let developers know if you also like this idea!

The discussion has just began...! ;-)
