When Ubuntu announced public availability of Personal Package Archives, I
thought it might be good to use it to provide up to date Gammu related
packages. After successful registration I uploaded Gammu package and no
reaction so far, so I'll wait.
However this memorised me that I wanted to use OpenSUSE Build Service for same
purpose some time ago. I filled in registration and as I didn't receive any
email about being accepted, I absolutely forgot about that. Now just tried to
log in and it works. So you can now have access to latest Gammu, python-gammu
and Wammu packages for most recent RPM distributions (Fedora 7, Fedora 8,
Mandriva 2006, Mandriva 2007, openSUSE 10.2, openSUSE 10.3, openSUSE Factory,
SLES 9 and SLE 10). I could not test them so any feedback is welcome :-). You
can find all packages on overview page or directly in download
Playing with spec files after long time was quite painful, but I got to it after I managed
the hardest thing - how to make build dependencies which will work on all
I hope I will be able to announce similar service for Ubuntu users using PPA,
but now I have to wait for some reaction on my source uploads.
