================== Open Build Service ================== The Open Build Service (OBS) is an open and complete distribution development platform designed to encourage developers to compile packages for multiple Linux distributions including openSUSE, Red Hat, Mandriva, Ubuntu, Fedora and Debian. It typically simplifies the packaging process, so developers can more easily package a single program for many distributions, and many openSUSE releases, making more packages available to users regardless of what distribution they use. Further documentation for the Open Build Service can be found at the openSUSE wiki on the Open Build Service portal page: http://en.opensuse.org/Portal:Build_Service Some running Open Build Service instances are listed here: http://www.open-build-service.org/instances.html Organization ============ The Open Build Service consists of several parts, namely the backend, the api and the webui. The backend implements all the core functionality (i.e. the business logic), whereas the webui provides a neat browser interface. The api forms the glue between those components and also serves as the integration point to other external tools (hence it's name). Therefore the source code is organized like this: ============ ================================================== Directory Description ============ ================================================== dist Files relevant for (distro) packaging docs Documentation, examples and the Build Service book src/api Api code (Ruby / Ruby on Rails) src/backend Backend code (Perl) src/webui Webui code (Ruby / Ruby on Rails) shared Stuff shared across the different parts ============ ================================================== Note that the three parts each also have their own documentation found in their respective subdirectories. Installation, deployment and development ======================================== These topics are covered in the file INSTALL and on the openSUSE wiki (see above). Licensing ========= The Open Build Service is Free Software and is released under the terms of the GPL, except where noted. Additionally, 3rd-party content (like, but not exclusively, the webui icon theme) may be released under a different license. Please check the respective files for details.
