This page describes basic information you needed if you want to contribute to MeeGo. Target audience is community member who wish to involve in MeeGo development.
Like other Linux distros, MeeGo is a package-based system, and it is using RPM package end. The RPM packages are managed in Zypper repos. The MeeGo development is using Open Build Service (OBS) to manage and build packages. If you are a serious and frequent MeeGo contributor, you need an OBS account to commit your changes back to MeeGo. Casual contributors can work without using OBS, and submit your changes back into MeeGo through the mailing list or work with the package maintainers to submit changes.
The overall processes of development with and without an OBS account are shown in the right figures. Detail description of the processes can be found below.
