Hi guys,

created a "bug" at [1] to request creation of a new OBS
project for IPOP [2]. Till now (10 days later) there is no progress or any
answer. On IRC someone told me that he wasn't sure about the legality, but
no further information about the reasons.

What can I do to speed up the creation?



OBS has projects composed of packages.

ipop looks like it would be a package, not a project. Projects
typically have hundreds of packages each.

Your package
is definitely an example of single ipop package in OBS speak.

To create a package you first build it in your home project (or a
sub-project of your home project). Obviously you have done that.

Once you have it built and tested you do a SR (submit request) of the
new package to an existing project.

If you want to do that via the gui, notice the "submit package" button
near the top of the overview tab of your package:

Once you click that button the dialog box will ask you which project
you want to submit to.

After that, one of the project maintainers accepts (or declines) it.
Typically when they accept a new package they will add you as the
specific maintainer, but all project maintainers will also have
maintainer rights to the new package. If you want to make sure you
get maintainer rights, explicitly ask for them in the SR.

As to your bugzilla, if I'm right that ipop should be a package not a
project, just close the bugzilla as invalid. If I'm wrong and really
do want a ipop project you should at least update the bugzilla to
explain why it should be a project.
