Re: [opensuse-buildservice] Add Scientific Linux to OBS

There is not a

ScientificLinux:6 standard

project repository. However, I had to notice that the ftp server
was not very unreliable, so there are quite some missing and broken
rpms atm. I try to fix this atm.

Anyway, on i586 a first packages were buildable, so there is a
osc & build package in openSUSE:Tools project. I use the new
rpm-md format for the repository at

but I dunno, if ScientificLinux/RHEL 6 is able to handle it.
Would be great if someone could test to add this repo and to install
osc and build package.

x86_64 is broken in general still due to missing/broken binaries.

Excuse me for asking what may be a dumb question, but why can't the devel
packages be built from source which by the gpl must be available?

To my knowledge (but I might be wrong), they are shipped only via RHN
which forbids redistribution.

However, I have not really checked this, but it is too risky for me
without finding out details (and I do not want to spend too much time
one this personally). I also have no access to RHN.
