Axel just asked me per PM, if and why I wouldn't use OBS for Debian gnuhealth
packages and I am also answering here to share with the list.
My points in primarily not using OBS in descending order:
- For the build of Debian packages I am using the Debian toolchain, whenever it
is not possible to use the Debian infrastructure itself. This gives me the
background of a well established and proven build system with extended sanity
- I don't know OBS, therefore following remarks may be FUD:
- The one or two times I wanted to try it was very unresponsive, I
saved my time in not trying further.
- I doubt, that the infrastructure as built on debian.tryton.org is
possible to do on OBS.
- I doubt, that OBS does the sanity testings (lintian, piuparts), which are
part of the quality process on debian.org.
- Finally I just trust more in Debian native tools than a third party build
