Maybe name OBS as BSOS meaning Building Service for Operating
System(s) but we also can have it as Building Service of (for) open
SUSE or Building Service Open Source.

One acronym with many meanings...

Open Build Service - as Jos said before is the best name of choice, I
think. Or we call it Linux Build Service (LBS), but some people will
think then, it´s something like LSB.

kind regards & a nice day

If I'm not mistaken (and it wouldn't be the first time I've been
mistaken) OBS also packages for Windows. Thus Linux Build Service
wouldn't work. Open is still the best.


About OBS, oBS, openSUSE Build Services, open Build Services, I am not feeling
any good changing the name at this right moment. The service was launched
and other people put the name as the felt it is better for them. And that's
not good either. But it is done. They are going to use it when it serves their
goals and maybe without giving a credit .

What I think we must make clear inside that tool (oBS) is putting somewhere
inside in a visible mode the openSUSE Sponsored logo or Novell Sponsored
