The openSUSE Build Service (obs) is an open package and distribution development platform that provides a transparent infrastructure that allows developers to build for various major Linux distributions and architectures.
Today, the openSUSE Build Service team released the latest version of the openSUSE Build Service, a tool that provides software developers with the ability to create and release software for openSUSE, SUSE Linux Enterprise and other Linux distributions, including Fedora, Red Hat, Mandriva, Debian and Ubuntu.
The openSUSE Build Service Team has decided to rename its cutting-edge packaging- and distribution build technology to Open Build Service. The new name, while maintaining the well-known OBS acronym, signals its open and cross-distribution nature.
The openSUSE Buildservice started out as an internal SUSE technology.
Am not familiar with OpenSUSE or OBS. Spent a day trying to go through the wiki information. I have an idea in my head and am trying to figure out how feasible it would be to use the OpenSuse Build System to get to the end result I want. Would appreciate any information or suggestions anyone could offer on this.
The upcoming openSUSE 12.1 release is being developed in Factory. According to the release schedule the Toolchain and several other critical components are frozen, but there is still time to get most package updates in! It’s not hard to do that, especially if you build packages on the Open Build Service anyway and you get your software to be part of openSUSE!
As you know, release of Mandriva 2011 is coming. After that our developers continue to upgrade and polish mandriva build system. We receive many requests from community, that new build system must have new features.
We do a number of software and hardware updates this week for our openSUSE servers. That means that some services will not be available for some time.

Maintenance of our content delivery infrastructure for about 1 hour. That means the following service will not be available:
I am currently using the OpenSUSE Build Service (https://build.opensuse.org/) to build ArangoDB. However, for some newer C++ features I need a fairly current C++ compiler. For some of the older distributions (like Debian6 or CentOS) the default compiler is simply too old.
I am pretty sure, there must be a way to use newer compiler with OBS, but I got lost in the documentation of OBS.
Im noticing that some vendors like mariadb and node.js have pre-build binaries for linux. One for 32bit and 64bit. I'm used to having to build from the source. So what are the advantage in either building from source code to just using a pre-build binary. One point of the pre-build binaries is that installing is faster using pre-build binaries.
