(5) Status reports

(1) Build rpms for SUSE using BitBake

BitBake[1] and OpenEmbedded[2] is an advanced package building
environment based on simple recipes and package classes. sbrabec works
on a setup that will allow to build packages for openSUSE there.


(2) lib64 default in autoconf's configure
./configure: Default to lib64.

It is possible to default to /usr/local/lib64 while calling ./configure
without arguments. Should it be done by default? [1]


(3) RPM version for popcon: popcorn

prusnak wrote a popularity-contest alternative for RPM distros. This was
announced on [2]. However this package could not be submitted to Factory now,
because we have no server to send the results to. Prusnak sent an e-mail to
Peter Poeml, but he is probably on vacation, so we have to wait further


(4) Installation of restricted content proposal
Sometimes is necessary install a content which is under some restrictions
(patents, copyrights) which prevents us to include it to openSUSE, but is
necessary for our users. Two biggest examples are: multimedia support and
device drivers (firmware).

puzel wrote a proposal of ease installation of restricted software for
openSUSE. [3]
