A new osc release, version 0.117 is out. This one has as main features
the long awaited "repairlink" functionality to fix broken source links due to
conflicting source changes and also tool support to maintain the .changes file

"osc repairlink" was implemented by Michael Schroeder. It checks out a package
with merged source changes. It usesa 3-way merge to resolve file conflicts.
After reviewing/repairing the merge, 'osc ci' will re-create a working source

"osc vc" was implemented by Michal Vyskocil and can collect commit messages to
prepare a changelog entry in the .changes file.
Please note that the entries there get read by users of the package, so commit
messages like "get it building" or "yet another try to get the patch applied"
are not helpfull for them and should get removed from the .changes file.

An alternative solution to maintain the changelog is to call "buildvc"
directly, which gets provided by the also released build.rpm

There are also a number of bugfixes and improvements inside to make your life
* You do not need to specify project and package anymore on "osc getbinaries"
when your cwd is a checkout package.
* "osc branch" got a new option to define a different branch project name.
* "osc branch" got a new option to checkout the package directly after
* "osc co PACKAGE" works inside of a checked out project directory

You can find the latest version of osc and build rpms in openSUSE:Tools
project as usual.

I hope this makes your life much easier now :)
