I am new to OBS, never used it, first time now. I want to make things correctly. I saw in OBS that it is possible to create a package derived from another.
I created my first project and want to derived my package from another existant one.
Fisrt, I think I have to click Create new package based on existing package. Is that right?
When I click it, there is this message on top that says :
By branching a package from another project you add the package and its files to your project in a transparent way. Changes of the files in the original project will also change the files in the branched package in your project.
I try to build clementine 0.5 for openSUSE 11.2 (I know it exists in KDE:Extra, but it doesn’t support MTP device and I told myself, why not give a try at OBS ) and I want to derive it from an existing package made for openSUSE 11.3. I don’t want to reinvent the wheel, since the spec file is there and all other files, I just want to build it for 11.2 in i586 and x86_64.
So, if I understand well, if changes are made on the files of the 11.3 version, changes will be reflected on my derived package. Is there potential problem with this or I don’t need to worry about it?
