openSUSE Build Service Now Open Build Service

May 27, 2011

openSUSE Build Service has a new name and new website.

openSUSE community manager Jos Poortvliet announced that the openSUSE Build Service has been renamed Open Build Service in response to its open and cross-distribution model. "It is and will remain an openSUSE project, with significant contributions from SUSE and openSUSE community members as well as many others from communities like MeeGo and VLC, but also be more clear about its cross-distribution, cross-project goals and ambitions," he says in his blog post.

This week Novell announced commercial support options for the Open Build Service (OBS) via a new OBS Developer Services (DS) program. Poortvliet explains, "Under this program, customers will receive support for configuration and setup issues as well as the ability to get code fixes for bugs that affect them. As part of this program, SUSE is also collecting requirements to the OBS software and will input this into the planning process for OBS. SUSE will be working with partners to enable and back them to offer implementation and consulting services."
