[lsb-discuss] kompozer

As Robert suggested, I setup kompozer on the OpenSuSE build service:


simply starting with the openSuSE:Factory build of 0.7.99 (they don't 
seem to be doing 0.8 yet, which is still beta)
I was under the impression that the build service did some things for 
you to build cross platform, but either I'm missing something, or you 
really do have to make a cross-platform spec file and provide deb build 
instructions (I've never done a .deb build, only cherry-picked patches 
out of the source).

Anyway, it builds fine for OpenSuSE* and SLES11, but fails on build deps 
for the other rpm based distros. It refuses to build without 
instructions for Debian/Ubuntu.
I did grab Mandriva's cooker src.rpm of 0.8b1 and rebuilt it for my 
2009.0, and it seems more stable than what I had, at least the sequences 
that made the other version crash repeatedly seem to work.
