Oh well, it's a pure waste of resource to publish this.
The OBS build uses it because it's the base of kernel-obs-* QA.
But it's no normal package to be installed on users.

No. People running private OBS instances also need this.

Needs for which purpose? I'm really curious why this is required for
any real usage (i.e. installing on a running system), since the kernel
binary packages are built fine without any of such extra QA-related
packages.

The obs build script / obsworker uses kernel-obs-build (if available) for
booting the build VMs.
If no kernel-obs-build is available, the kernel & initrd of the obsworker
host is used, which may or may not work well.

...in the past I actually had to build/package a kernel-obs-build for CentOS7
to be able to use kiwi in OBS with CentOS,
because the RH patched LVM tools silently errored out on a SUSE kernel
(probably a non-implemented private IOCTL or
similar). https://github.com/seife/kernel-obs-build

But then kernel-obs-build is just a repackaged kernel-default vmlinuz +
slightly customized initrd.

OK, now point taken. Then it's a valid requirement of
kernel-obs-build.

So, back to the original problem: I believe this should be better
addressed in shadow itself, instead of papering over each place via
ugly hacks.


thanks,

Takashi
