Feature Request for Pattern Generator


I would like to have a program (Console), that reads in a plain/text File with the needed Packages and creates as output a Pattern File, that can be used in the Buildservice or Susestudio.

User benefit:

Through the plain/text file it is easy to manage new and present Packages. And an easy to use pattern creating process.

I don't get it, what exactly do you want? a Console program that reads in a text file with what, a list of packages, as in RPM packages? Isn't that what a Pattern file is?

Hello Jos,

My idea is the following. I've created a Appliance for openSUSE medical. My wish is that i can create a textfile with all my needed Packages for that Appliance. Then i wish to read in that Packages and make a pattern file with a cli. The output should be a pattern file. So i can use that file in upcoming versions of openSUSE medical. Because i have a handselected blend, and i don't wish to make that every time new.

I can imagine that we can can split the textfile into a normal choose section and a suggested section. So i can split my packages into that 2 sections.

Hmmm. Now I'm not incredibly at home in SUSE studio but can't you just clone your appliance if you want to make a new version and then upgrade and change whatever you want?

This sounds like re-inventing pattern files to generate pattern files.
