Hi List,

The Vendor string in the packages built on OBS (also own installations)
always points to openSUSE Build Service. I tried to play with Macros in the
Project Configuration (%vendor and alike) but I seem not to have caught the
one that actually changes the vendor. So I ended up changing the string in
the source of OBS directly.

Of course this is terrible, as past proves I tend to forget to re-patch it
after an upgrade, ending up with a 'wrong' repository.

Is there a way that this could be defined in the Project Config?
From a source point of view I think it would be even better if this string
could be moved to the (more obvious to find to change it).

Comments and tips are welcome ;)

There is no clean way yet. A patch would be welcome :)

You need to patch the bs_srcserver at the lines 1500 and following. Some
setting from the project config and/or via would be prefered.

Ok, thanks... then I did it actually 'the correct' way so far... but of course
forgot about it on any upgrade occasion.

Thanks for the info. If I'll find time I might start reading the source a bit
and maybe I can start contributing to OBS a bit.
