I'm currently integrating TDE R14 in the opensuse build service.

What I'm doing on OBS:
- Building packages without any patch (TDE R14 must be buildable out of 
the box)
- Keeping source code and packaging files in our own GIT
- Configuring OBS servers to download the required files from our GIT 
then build the packages.

It takes me some time to modify the RPM packages, because the "rpmlint" 
tool for opensuse adds many constraints that I don't have when building 
on my own computer.
And I must remain compatible with other RPM distributions too.

At the moment, I don't know how to make OBS aware of source code change 
in our GIT, to have automatic rebuild of packages. I must trigger the 
download/build manually.

Tim, can you please consider adding patches from bug #2133 so that 
tdeilbs will build on OBS ?
Then I can build tdebase and have a minimal working TDE ...

Finally, please be aware that OBS is good but not the ultimate build 
solution: it lacks support for many distributions.
