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.”
This weekend, I visited the LinuxTag exhibition in Berlin, both to support my company’s booth and to talk to the horde guys whose booth was just on the opposite side, allowing easy coordination. As a result, I adopted the passwd tool which hasn’t yet been released for H4. It’s been packaged for the SUSE server:php:applications repository and will be part of the next pre-release of the upcoming Horde 4 Demo VM. First effort was adding a new backend driver ‚horde‘ which is just a proxy to horde’s configured authentication backend.
