So you would like to see better integration between openQA and OBS?

openQA imnsho is just another flavour of build (as in rpm, kiwi, deb,

Not now, but probably could be integrated that way.

yes, but it would be just one little part of automated QA. Also, it could be
also kept standalone, but scheduled and reporting back in a transparent way
with OBS.

Anyway, the entire QA stuff would be actually multiple huge projects. Yes, we
approach them, but the more low hanging fruit is IMHO the wanted workflow
regarding the staging projects. They can used also as input for all kind auf QA

So, from what I hear and read we need to decide about

* How should it work? Eg. a staging project


1) contains a number of unversioned links to the devel package?
+ on submission time to factory no merge conflicts will happen
- stage project may not finish, because people in devel packe are not aware
of it.

2) Or "accepting" a submit request. maybe with multiple actions, into a
stage project.
Keep working there, maybe directly together with the original submitter
and transfer
changes from there to factory with another request?
+ devel package changes can happen independend
+ we have a similar model already with the maintenance incidents. Just
that we would
not move binaries, only sources. And we would not need the
.openSUSE_X.y extensions
for package names.
- it introduces a temporary third version of the package sources, which
may lead
to more merge work.

do you see another model?
