Opensuse 12.3 - Appstream based app-store to be integrated into next release
- Make it easy for developers to release an application
- Make it easy for developers to market and for users to learn about that application
- Make it easy for users to install the application
Project Bretzn consists of three parts: the
building of the package, the
publishing of the application, the
marketing to the users and the
feedback cycle back to the developer. The building part consists of plugins for IDE’s and integration with Build Services and using
Lubos Lunak’s OBS Generator (yes, still
looking for a new name ) to automatically generate cross-platform build files. Publishing sends the app to a variety of App Stores and then markets it through announcing it on Facebook, Twitter, via a RSS feed and the
Social Desktop . Finally, users can provide feedback by rating the application and commenting on it, by writing bug reports and send messages to mailing lists or forums. And all of that with one click (well, maybe a few more).
Over 70% of the work is done already and the team is aiming to ship in December. They are working with other openSUSE developers to make a proof-of-concept App Store for openSUSE using OBS and the other integration which will hopefully ship in the upcoming openSUSE 21.1 release.
This sounds like the kind of thing we want!
