OBS source services can currenlty run on the developer workstation and some of them also on the OBS server side.
The goal of this project is to allow everybody running source services as part of their build job. Therefore we will introduce a new "buildtime" mode. The OBS server will pull in the needed service packages and run them before calling rpmbuild or friends.
This will come at glance when we have also git/svn/... mirroing support. We can mirror entire trees (without the need to store them tar'd) and can create the source then during build time. This will allow more efficiences, but also more flexibility. Every project can easily create their version of services and execute them.
This project is one of its kind!
