I played around with OpenSUSE's OBS but it's not a success yet.
It needs a something.spec file for building RPMs and a something.dsc file
for DEBs. Both files serve to define a source package.
For the spec file, I started from one well worked out for Planet CCRMA by
Fernando Lopez-Lezcano. It's looking good for the OBS right now except that
I'm struggling with the source definition, i.e. it doesn't seem to be able
to grab the tar.gz from sourceforge.
For the debian dsc file, I used Paul Brossier's one. The dsc is much
simpler, but it cannot accept source urls, only local files. That's where
OBS's so-called "Source Service" comes into the picture, which can download
a tar.gz or even checkout an svn repo and tar.gz it for me. I'm struggling
with this too, because (1) I'm unable to grab the resulting tar.gz from the
dsc (it's created with an odd name that contains a colon) and (2) in the
dsc an MD5 checksum of the tar.gz needs to be present which is unknown in
the case of an archive newly created from SVN.
I'll try to grow smarter with OBS, but in the meantime, any advice is
highly appreciated. :)
