The Open Build Service (OBS) is a generic system to build and distribute packages from sources in an automatic, consistent and reproducible way. It makes it possible to release software for a wide range of operating systems and hardware architectures. The OBS reference server, which we use to build our distribution, currently (March 2019) hosts 62,954 projects, with 527,451 packages, in 94,872 repositories for numerous distributions and architectures and is used by 60,034 confirmed developers.
