» Packman for Factory

It has often been requested in the past, and we're finally building Packman packages for openSUSE Factory (the openSUSE development tree). As Factory is in almost permanent flux, we are building against openSUSE Factory snapshots instead. We don't build everything against factory either, as we only have limited build power, but essential applications such as MPlayer are there :)

» Scripts for OBS monitoring

(yes, I'm back from holidays) Marcus "}-Tux-{" Hüwe and I have been busy the last weeks to set up an openSUSE Build Service instance for Packman. While doing so, I wrote a few little scripts to monitor what is going on as far as building, the scheduler queue and such are concerned. The most interesting ones are obs-building, that displays what is currently being built on all workers: obs-building sample as well as obs-queue, that displays what is currently being scheduled for build: obs-queue sample and finally obs-top, a simple hack that uses watch to display combined output from top, obs-building and obs-queue: obs-top sample
