Here is a summary of activity on the opensuse-buildservice mailing list during week 22:
Benedikt is using ownCloud debian packages from OBS, but the
public key file for these is self-signed. Would it be possible to provide
verifiable repo keys?

The Sphinx index engine bit Brian when he mistakenly branched a package in the web UI. A new subproject was created under his home project, and now he cannot delete either the package or the subproject. > * This is a bug in Sphinx, occurring in special situations and not easy > to reproduce.
Willy is having problems getting his built packages to publish. He has five
packages building successfully for Debian 7.0, but only two show up on the

Johannes has built some packages in subprojects and would now like to move
them into his “main” project. How to move packages?

osc currently lacks a straightforward move command.
Carsten ran into some errors updating his OBS instance from 2.4.6 to 2.5.3.
The errors are “/srv/obs/configuration.xml: No such file or directory”
and “rake aborted! Don’t know how to build task ‘ts:index’”
> * Adrian: The first error will fix itself – the file will get written by a
> delayed job, after Carsten runs the database migration.
> * The second issue was caused by an incomplete
zypper up run (
> was not updated).
In this thread started by Eric, the list denizens discussed an OBS bug that caused unresolved errors like “have choice for libxml2.so.2(LIBXML2_2.5.2) needed by ???: libxml2-2-32bit libxml2-2”
get a kiwi project to build on his private OBS instance – it does
build on the public OBS, however.
