Here is a summary of activity on the opensuse-buildservice mailing list during week 20:
Damian had a problem with the tar_scm service checking out bazaar repos
from launchpad, but he solved it himself after finding an example on OBS
bzr tar_scrm service. See the
thread for details.
Liquider has a subproject where he is building binaries, but he wants to
have these binaries published elsewhere (in the main project, in this case).

Rick noticed that
were moved into /configuration API as anonymous and registration. But he cannot
seem to configure these settings via the API.
> * Stefan pointed him to the correct
osc api incantations.
Ruediger wants to know if it is possible to run a command from the
section as root.

Ruediger also wants to know if it’s possible to
BuildRequire a package without
installing all its dependencies? He just needs some headers.
> * Jan and Andreas both answered that this indicates a need to split the

Michael announced that new build repository handling has been enabled for
home projects. OBS maintains an internal repo used for building (the “:full
useforbuild flag can be used to configure if built packages
are copied into the tree or not.

Andreas thinks something is wrong with the i586
Arch_Extra image – it is
continually in “unresolvable” state with “nothing provides gcc-libs =
4.9.0-2 needed by gcc”. The 64-bit version looks fine.
> * Michael found the issue and triggered a re-sync.
