here's a small summary of the 2nd (coding) week. This

I've looked at the code and tests and like it. As far as I have seen, you
included a 'directory' schema from the OBS. At some point in time we may
either want to move schemas into a shared module or move osc2 back into the
OBS repo.

The directory schema is just a "dummy" schema which is used for
testing only (I was too lazy to write a new schema that's why I copied

Currently I'm still working on the "remote models":
* decided to use lxml.objectify [1]:
- goal is to encapsulate the xml logic solely into the object itself
- example workflow:
prj = RemoteProject('some_name')
prj.title = 'dummy'
prj.description = 'foo bar'
repo = prj.add_repository(name='openSUSE_Factory')
repo.add_path(project='openSUSE:Factory', repository='standard')
# change arch to x86_64
repo.arch[0] = 'x86_64'
Good choice, this will greatly reduce the need for XML parsing, does
lxml.objectify allow validation when you create an object from a XML string?

It's possible to validate the string before you create the object. In
our case the xml validation should happen anyway in the httprequest
module (if the xml string comes from the api). If we send a
"constructed" xml to the server the validation should happen in the
corresponding model (before passing the data to the http class).

Minor stuff:
* decided to use the "logging" module:
this way we can easily add "debug" and "info" etc. messages and it's up
to the "client" which messages it wants to display (I'm not talking about
the messages which are displayed when "osc up" is called or something like
Natural choice, I've seen you used it already in the httprequest module.
