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.

How to build Arch Linux packagesAll you need to do is to add the Arch:Extra repository to your OBS project and a PKGBUILD description to your package sources and the OBS will build and publish a repository of .pkg.tar.xz packages.2 questions come to mind :- do they support using a src.tar.gz pacakge, like it's made by makepkg --source ?- How current is that OBS Arch:Extra repo , and how often
The Open Build Service, a system to collaboratively build and easily distribute packages for a wide variety of operating systems and platforms, has introduced the ability to integrate the intelligent OBS ‘download package’ page into websites.
