openSUSE on IBM z Systems now building Factory in Ports Project

Berthold Gunreben
openSUSE Factory now builds for the IBM z Systems architecture in a
special ports project called openSUSE:Factory:zSystems.

== Goal ==

This project is targeted to improve the integration of z Systems
technology into the openSUSE distribution. This is done by several
- it allows the openSUSE community to actively work on a distribution
  targeted for z Systems like LinuxOne Emperor and LinuxOne Rockhopper.
- build issues can be found much earlier than during SUSE Linux
  Enterprise release cycles.
- new features can be integrated without having to wait for service
- allow customers to participate in the base development for future
  SUSE Linux Enterprise products.

== Status ==

The project openSUSE:Factory:zSystems has been setup several weeks ago
as a new project in the Open Buildservice. The packages in this project
are inherited from openSUSE:Factory. Most of the packages already build
without issues. This project now has been made publicly accessible.

== Communication ==

The port of openSUSE:Factory to z Systems is a new project, and thus
still needs some work on documentation. A wiki page has been created to
start with, and it will be expanded as needed. Find the entry point to
the wiki at:

For communication like status, development question etc. a mailing list
has been setup. To subscribe to this mailing list, use the web
interface found at:

For more immediate communication, an IRC channel has been prepared on

Note, that there is a lot of documentation available for the openSUSE
Buildservice, that is applicable for this project as well.
