Today the openSUSE project announced that their packaging solution OpenSUSE Build Service will be re-branded to highlight the crossplatform nature of the product. The new name of the platform will be Open Build Service (OBS). Commercial support will also be available soon.
Ralph Dehner, CEO at B1 Systems GmbH noted:
“In the past B1 Systems has written build environments for the customers by itself. With the open Build Service now exists a “standard” which makes it easy to build packages for different distributions and architectures.
This will be also interesting for many other open source projects.”
