We just released the Build Service 1.0 release candidate. The final release
expected in two weeks.

Most important about this release are the improvements in source handling.
Submissions to foreign projects are possible now. That does mean that after
two years of development, direct work on openSUSE distribution becomes
possible, with bugzilla in between ! You see, we need sometimes a bit
but we keep our promises :)

The Build Service at is already running it, so it
can be already used for submissions. You just need the current osc from
openSUSE:Tools project.

I notice that you can't do submitreq without branching first. So the
following won't work:

osc submitreq create -m 'This will fail' GNOME:Community banshee \

Feature or, uh, missing feature?

It would work if the target package already exists at the place where
you want to submit it.

It is a bug, as others already wrote.

Another open bug is that it is not possible to delete a submit request,
once it has been issued. (Only the owner of the destination project can
do that.)

Also, submitreq is rather poorly named. :( "mergereq" might make more

It may seem like (intended to be a) a merge at first, but technically it
is not a merge, but a copy. It will overwrite the target package, _not_
apply a diff with the differences.

(Especially when you want to submit the package to some place where it
doesn't exist yet ;-)

Maybe this should be made more clear on the collaboration page.
