Got an Open Source Package? Put it in Package Hub!


The great thing about Rerun, the local consignment store here in Northeast Portland is the variety of cool stuff they have, and every time you go there, there’s new cool stuff. If you have your own cool stuff that you’re looking to sell, you can bring it to Rerun and they’ll put it on the shelf where someone who’s been looking for just that thing will see it, love it and buy it.

For SUSE Customers – A Place to Get Cool (and Approved) Stuff!

SUSE Package Hub is a lot like Rerun. It’s a place where SUSE Linux Enterprise users can go to find a collection of popular open source packages that are pre-built for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12, ready to install and use. While the packages from the SUSE Package Hub are not officially supported by SUSE, they are officially approved for use, and you can use these packages with SUSE Linux Enterprise Server without worrying about breaking your SUSE support contract. And even better than Rerun, packages in SUSE Package Hub are FREE with a valid SUSE Linux Enterprise subscription.

For ISVs – A Place to Put Stuff Where Customers Will Find It!

If you’re an ISV or a package maintainer with an open source software package, SUSE Package Hub is a great place to put those packages so that customers will find them. Getting packages into SUSE Package Hub is easy. SUSE Package Hub packages are built and maintained utilizing the Open Build Service,  a generic system to build and distribute packages from sources in an automatic, consistent and reproducible way. It makes it possible to release software for a wide range of operating systems and hardware architectures. From OBS, you can send your package to openSUSE:Factory, the package production system that churns out high quality, up-to-date packages for openSUSE Tumbleweed and openSUSE Leap distributions. The exact same source code qualified and approved for those distributions is used for the SUSE Package Hub.
