To have a more efficient upstream packaging support in OBS, I want to implement the following

  • Support to mirror git/svn/.. trees on source server
  • Copy entire source trees to workers
  • Support pre-rpmbuild (or deb or kiwi) source modification (esp. for creating tar balls from git trees) as part of the build process.

Current plan is to re-use source service infrastructure for that.

    The same functionality would also help darix gem2spec generator, since it can adapt spec files to workaround limitations on build time, depending on the build target.

    you can take as inspiration which we use for packaging and command rake tarball in fact create tarball from git -
