Linux Foundation Brings OpenSUSE Build Service into Developer Network

Apr 09, 2009

The openSUSE project and the Linux Foundation will be making the openSUSE Build Service available through the Linux Developer Network (LDN). Among other things, the Build Service will take advantage of the LDN's AppChecker.

Along with the announcement of the Linux Foundation's LDN adoption of the openSUSE Build Service, the project financed through Novell is also releasing a new version 1.6 of the service, which supports compiling for the ARM platform for embedded devices.

Linux Foundation's VP of marketing and development programs, Amanda McPherson, commented on the deal: "The openSUSE Build Service is a huge step forward for developers and ISVs that want to package their offerings for all major distros quickly and easily."

Joe "Zonker" Brockmeier, community manager at openSUSE, was also excited about the "culmination of years of work" in the project: "The openSUSE Build Service has always been intended as a tool that would accelerate the general adoption of Linux. It's gratifying to see the build service becoming part of the Linux Developer Network and being embraced by the larger community."

Linux Magazine Online posted previous information about the openSUSE Build Service.
