mme: Maintenance Made Easy

Package, build and release YaST maintenance updates for SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 and 10.

(For SLE 12 a better mechanism based on Jenkins CI is already in place)

It uses OBS (openSUSE Build Service), and Git. It builds in a chroot without needing virtual machines.


git clone
cd maintenance-made-easy
make install-links

It will link the programs from the working copy to your $HOME/bin.


Prepare a fix in your Git working copy, commit it. Pushing or merging is not required for this script so you can test unreleased fixes.

cd .../your-working-copy
mme-all sp4

The required argument is the target release. The full option menu is:

Usage: mme-all [options] SHORT_PRJ [build options]

 where SHORT_PRJ is sp4 or sp3 (for SLE11), sle10sp4 ...

 -h  Help
 -r <RPM name>; defaults to contents of RPMNAME
 -g <git URL> clone from here instead;
              defaults to CWD if .git/ exists
 -B  Don't branch the OBS project

Build options:
  anything for 'osc build'; --no-verify or -x strace may be useful


The script will read RPMNAME and check out the latest good package from IBS (to ~/obs/$REPO/$RPMNAME). Actually it will branch the OBS package first so that you can then commit and submit your package, once the fix is confirmed to be good. If you are just testing a colleague's fix you may want to skip the branch with mme-all -B.

It will build the old version of the package to fill the build root with proper dependencies.

It will clone the working copy into the chroot, using your UID, to make ad-hoc edits and fixes easier.

It will make a package via make package-local in the chroot and copy the result to the OBS checkout.

It will call osc build.

If the build succeeded, you should proceed to call osc ci and osc sr by hand. This is not automatic. (But remember to merge the reviewed fix in Git first.)

If the build failed, call mme-chroot and select the appropriate build root from a menu to get a shell where you can enjoy debugging.
