Re: [opensuse-factory] SUSE Studio Express questions

Congrats to the team on getting this integration rolling. Quick question:

Since OBS already builds images for various environments, we will first add a new image building GUI to OBS. This combined solution will now be delivered as “SUSE Studio Express”.

Currently when I go to I just see a landing page with links to the OBS image templates and some instructions. But I don't see a new GUI or visual way of putting together a custom image, except for the "Edit Kiwi" section. Is the full GUI still forthcoming?

It links to the GUI that has been added over the last months - and will see some more work.

And what about external repositories? It appears that non-OBS RPM repos added to Studio Express fail unless they have the `obs:/` scheme address. So that means no adding external repos such as Packman? (As a matter of fact, it looks like none of my repos from the SuseStudio import work, even the openSUSE OSS ones, since they use an `http://` URL scheme.)

You can edit your packages, for some of them indeed a manual conversation is needed. Best to ask more questions on the build service list.

Also, with the "KIWI Image Templates for openSUSE Leap 42.3", which would I use for a live ISO image that can run on physical hardware? All the current templates seem to be only for virtualization systems.

You might need to create one first.

other features are not on the roadmap like test drive

I'll sure miss this one. As the developer of GeckoLinux with no less than seventeen (17) different ISO editions, the test drive was the single biggest time saver that allowed me to test configurations. It even had a fascinating feature where you could see what files were getting changed during the test drive session, complete with diffs of the changes, and then you could hand pick which modified files to overlay in the final ISO. I learned so much about how and where the different desktop environments save their settings thanks to this feature.

You can do this nowadays with BtrFS and snapshotting.

I've learned to really appreciate SuseStudio despite all of its quirks and intricacies. I hope that the OBS / Studio Express feature set can be eventually improved to gradually come close to parity. SuseStudio, you will be missed! :-)

Yes, Studio has some really great stuff - and now it's time to take features like collaboration, additional architectures etc from OBS and merge these,
