It's in the new queue.
I use a combination of git-dpm & dgit. Which although useful, has
quilt noise committed as patches. (Maybe I should use stand-alone
branch for dgit/quilt noise).
You should be able to fetch it with:
$ dgit clone obs-build
Or I've now pushed a "normal" git master branch thus it's
visiable/clonable with git itself as well:
In terms of patches, I have:
Use obs-build namespace, similar to your patch.
I fixed & submitted upstream a bug with createzypp repository script.
I do not move project configurations to /etc, as I don't think that's
right. Released distribution configurations should be frozen, to have
reproducible builds locally.
Custom/non-upstream distro configs should either be patched/applied in
the Debian package, packaged separately and install into same config
location, or passed to obs-build via command-line option.
We really don't want people to modify build configuration files for
volatile distribution (e.g. Factory, Rawhide, Sid, etc) and then never
get upgraded when those change, due to how config-files are handled.
Maybe it makes sense to patch obs to support multiple locations? E.g.
/etc/obs-build/configs and /usr/lib/obs-build/configs?
