allow zypper to understand obs:// repos

Feature state



i think will be wonderful if zypper/YaST will be able to menage obs repos using the URI currenctly used on kiwi...

obs://X11:/lxde/openSUSE_11.1 (or even

obs://X11:lxde/openSUSE_11.1 using the obs name without / )

is much easier than

http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/X11:/lxde/openSUSE_11.1  (hoping i didn't forget something writing that down)

User benefit:

to have a better cooperation between zypper and obs (and make easier to add obs repos just adding the project name instead of the full url

I like this Idea. Hope it can be implement in future versions.

Please install zypper from home:cgoncalves/zypper (same version shipped with openSUSE 11.2) and check if it works as you are requesting.

yes, it works fine :)

using "obs://" in kiwi or build service is refering to a local build service instance. This is not always build.opensuse.org.

kiwi has the "opensuse://" convention for refering http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/ .

It would be very useful to provide semi-protocol and handler for ymp files (semi-protocol with shorter, simplified urls: ymp://repo/ymp.file or ymp://repo/package and/or ymp://repo/package1,package2) and obs repos.

Apt-url equivalent would be less for debianers to complain (; .

Where are we with this?

Michael Andras looked at it, somebody (not him) built in a hack to zypper that resolves obs:/ urls into http://download.opensuse.org/repositories (by default).  But ma and mls say this should be implemented properly at the libzypp level.
