+1 KOHA is a bit messy to install from scratch with all it's
dependencies. for that reason i'm running debian on a server that might
be openSUSE instead. debian have KOHA in their repos for a long time,
and it's much easier to use & maintain than manually installing
everything via CPAN, etc.

I already figure out an easy install of Koha on openSUSE 12.1:

So now there will be easier for maintainers to package Koha on OBS.

What about using the already available package
as base for your experiments?
Simply login, create a branch of the package, do your changes to bring
that package into a good shape and submit your changes back. Everything
you need for this is described in the openSUSE wiki.
...or, if you think you need some help: just start asking the packagers
who to help to improve the quality of that package. It might be that
they are answering direct questions. ;-)

Yes.. :)
In my experience and told in the blog post
we still need perl-DBD-SQLite2
&lang=en&exclude_debug=true) and perl-PDF-API2-Simple
&lang=en&exclude_debug=true) packages for Koha 3.6.4 or 3.8 to get
install. Unfortunately those two perl modules packages are not
available yet on Open Build Service.
I'm not familiar yet on building perl modules packages in OBS, so
hopefully other contributors will do this task.. :)

+ Hi Lars Vogdt,
+ Awesome! Now there is only one package left (perl-DBD-SQLite2) for Koha
+ to get built on OBS.. :)
+ Thank you very much for providing perl-PDF-API2-Simple on OBS:
+ Really exciting for getting involved on it. I also update the blog post about
+ it:
+ Thanks.
