I noticed two bugs/problems:

* The OBS Webpage compresses files an additional time:
The page offers to download the files:

The downloaded file is not the orginal file (content of,
the file gziped a second time.

* debtransform produces incorrect diffs for empty files

The version installed on the OBS builders produces an incorrect patch for empty

dpkg-source reports a syntax error
dpkg-source: error: expected ^@@ at line 2 of diff

I'm exploring the possibilties of OBS.

The source services provide a simple way to build RPM packages out of a SCM.
I'm trying to do the same for DEB packages and managed to get at least
something built.

Using set_version and debtransform allowed me to build a source package, but
the version number is
strange for a Debian package, because set_version only insert the version
without a release number.

I didn't find any way to automatically adapt the version number of built binary
The debian build process takes the binary version number from the changelog. I
didn't find any
source service (similar to set_version) to adapt/generate a debian changelog.
Therefore it is
only possible to use a fixed version number (either in debian.changelog or in a
changelog file in one of the tars).
