Hello all,

Two months ago I enquired on this mailing list about packaging my pet project
(a search tool, http://pinot.berlios.de/) for SuSE. Marcus Rueckert
kindly pointed
me to the Build Service at http://en.opensuse.org/Build_Service

I have now successfully tested the new release on a friend's SuSE 10.1 machine,
and I was going to give the Build Service a go when I saw that access
is restricted
to known packagers.
At this stage, it would be great if someone who's experienced with packaging on
SuSE could double-check the spec file and maybe build RPMs which I would then
host on my project's web site.

All dependencies are available in stock SuSE, except :
- Xapian, for which Marcus built packages, see
- libtextcat, for which a SuSE-friendly SRPM is available, see
- antiword and unrtf; packages were available for previous SuSE releases
The SRPM I tried and built on SuSE is available at :
It is based on this spec file :

If anyone is interested, please get in touch with me.
Thanks a bunch !
