Thoughts on the Open Build System
By Jeroen van Meeuwen
Hans de Raad
Independent consultant, open-source enthusiast (openSUSE, Drupal, etc). Also a big classical music lover (artistic manager of the Huygensfestival in Voorburg, supporter of several international chamber music festivals in/around The Hague, The Netherlands). One of my companies basic philosophies is, if open-source provides you with a stable revenue (thank you, 10x), you should do something in return. So my company donates 10% of its annual profit to one of the projects we've been using that year. This contribution can also be by providing help, i.e. in 2015 I was project lead and organizer for openSUSE conference in The Hague!
Jeroen van Meeuwen is the Senior Solutions Architect for the independent software vendor Kolab Systems, proprietor and patron of the Free Software collaboration suite Kolab. In this session, Jeroen shares his experiences on running the Open Build System for the Kolab community. Kolab Groupware is a community product with packages supplemental to existing distributions' base and extra software repositories, and as such puts forth seriously different requirements on a build system, involving desired packaging and release management, compared to building and maintaining distributions themselves.
