I have put into openSUSE:Tools:MeeGo a release Candidate of OBS 1.8.0.
It is done from the current 1.8 branch in OBS Git repository (and from
master "osc" and "build" scripts).



OBS has the following Feature Highlights:

* Access Control Enforcement: Group and Role Support, Permissions with
granularity on Package, Repository and Project wide resources
* Improved Crossbuild Support: PowerPC Emulation now works, Added
support for *dynamic switching* of cross compilation and native
compilation, e.g. on native ARM machines arm compilers are used, on x86
Servers arm *cross compilers* are used.
The user does not have to take care of this anymore. One build can
now *mix both*.
* KVM Virtual Machine Support as security enhancement and safety belt
for building. Works also with ARM builds (emulated) and PowerPC (native
on proper HW and emulated) builds now.
* Download on Demand: Coupling of OBS to *non OBS systems and
repositories*. Any internet based Distribution using Debian or RPM
format can be used.
* Enhanced support for ARM by providing own architectures armv4 up to
armv7 with own scheduler queues and appropriate OBS handling.

The appropriate "osc" and "build" packages needed are also placed in the
openSUSE:Tools:MeeGo. An osc update is needed to have "CB{pre}install:
aka *dynamic switching* of cross compilation" working, same with "build"

The qemu-deploy package is a new version that can run PowerPC user mode
Emulation for diverse PPC targets correctly. Caution: it is a
prerelease, and has some known issues reported in the 32bit version, as
well as when used on a multiprocessor Host Machine. If you feel unsafe
with this, use the old qemu under openSUSE:Tools
