ZYpp project now on git

Filed under
SUSE

You may have noticed (or not?) that svn.opensuse.org/svn/zypp is now read-only. Since a couple of weeks the ZYpp project repository is now hosted on git.opensuse.org.

Now you can fork and develop much easily without needing access to the “official repository”. Developers can work disconnected, enjoy the git features to handle merges and branches, oh, and you can keep your forks in git publishing sites like the cool GitHub

Some new features:

* We now build zypper automatically over the rest of the ZYpp stack.
* We publish the last successful build that passes the testsuite automatically to zypp:Head project. This one will obsolete zypp:svn.
* We are working to build other pieces of the stack automatically, like PackageKit.
