Oh, I assumed that packman was using OBS, and I wanted to hook up my
clamshell as a build client.

Is there still interest amongst the packman packagers in using OBS?  It
makes packaging sooo much easier (I was suse's Mono packager for several
years).  I'd be willing to help set this up as well as help package.

(A previous thread mentioned that using OBS would attract more packagers.  I
think this is definitely true.  Look at all the home repositories in suse's
obs server: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/ .  Count: 1229

.spec files can be altered to handle architecture specific needs (ppc in
this case).

Anyone interested?
