Re: [opensuse-buildservice] Downloading sources before the build

At the moment all of the packages I've seen are storing the sources next to
spec file. But some of the spec files are specifying Source0 as http url.

So here is the question: is it possible to actually download the sources
before the build, and why not? :)

not before each build, but you can let obs download it after source commit.

However, it will still go to the source repository for good reasons:
- servers or files may go away
- files with the same name may change
- evil servers might deliver a different file to our server then
to anyone else.

in any case, we want to be able to find out what was used for a build job

I don't know which is better for OBS,
storing all the sources all the time or spending network resources to
them (and maybe cache) for short periods of time.
