Welcome to the MeeGo OBS webinterface guide - part 2. We'll show you how you can login and use the webinterface being hosted at build.meego.com . This includes login, adding a link to a package in your personal workspace (home:) and how to build that package by adding a repository.
Please note: you'll need an account to access the build service server. See this page on the progress of the Community Builder.
Open your favourite browser and navigate to https://build.meego.com. You'll be directed to the startpage.
To proceed, you'll need to login and authenticate with your username and your password. Either enter the data in the upper right corner or click on the login button in the middle.
After successful authentication, you'll end up on the startpage again - with new options visible.
Enter your "Home Project" by clicking on the link on the left side. You'll see this page as setup in part 1:

Right below packages, there's "Link Package from other Project" .
Open that page and enter for
Name of original project: Trunk
Name of package in original project: bash
- we'll leave "Name of linked package in target project" empty. This is shown on the next picture:
Proceed with "Create Link" and you'll be redirected to your home again. You'll see a new package "bash" and a notice about the link being added.
Wonderful, we've added a pointer to the sources - now we need a build repository added, so the builder knows the target-distribution.
To do this, click on "Add Repository". This will look like:
