I would like to create a build server for OSS running on AIX since
the support from IBM for OSS on AIX is pretty marginal.
So the question I have:
- Does the OpenSuse build system is suitable /usable for such a task
However, I guess you want to build rpm packages for AIX, right ?
So you could try to build such a package with the build script from
build.rpm on AIX.

I have taken a look at the build.rpm. It will not be able to create a chroot
environment but this is on AIX not a big problem.
As far as I understand the tool osc ( written in python ) is needed. The readme
says that other python modules needed as well. I will see if I can install them
on AIX. But which python version is needed as a minimum ?

As mentioned already I would like to have the some software versions later on
AIX as compared to a given OpenSuse Software version. The question which arise
here is simply
- how do I know which software versions are used for a given OpenSuse version ?
- Is there a way to build for a given Software version with osc ?


In case the OBS project needs a IBM power5 machine I can provide a VM running
either Suse Linux or AIX for free use and accessible via the internet ( 2
shared p5 2.1 GHz CPUs , 10GB disk space and 1.25 GB RAM )
