Whut?! Sabayon Community Repositories is here!

Hello users,

Time passed when i first wrote the article "[Part 1] Building Gentoo and Sabayon packages in your machine locally or remotely with Docker and Cloud Services" that was going to be divided into parts. But things changed amazingly fast and there is better news, I wrote up a suite of tools that makes the whole operation much easier, thanks also to +Ben Roberts (optiz0r) who contributed in the development and he is also kindly sponsoring the buildserver.

Some of you probably already heard about Sabayon Community Repositories (SCR) that we announced  in the developers mailing list some weeks ago, if not, keep reading. The SCR Build System is an improvement of the methodology explicated before, but with a lot of extras and automated features. This is how SCR is born.

Information and how-to use: Wiki page (under construction)
Search available packages: SCR website
Packages requests: Bugzilla section
Contributing/setup a local development environment: How-to contribute
Guidelines and Bylaws (for SCR Devs): scr-docs Github repository

[Part 1] Building Gentoo and Sabayon packages in your machine locally or remotely with Docker and Cloud Services

As previously anticipated in the previous blog post, here i explain what's going on with Sabayon Docker images, and how can the Official Sabayon images help you in developing/deploying your application. In this article, i'll show how to build Sabayon/Gentoo packages using Docker.

I'll cover five cases and will be divided in differents articles:

  1. You want to build packages locally
  2. You want to remotely build packages
  3. You want to host an overlay or a Sabayon repository and want your packages to get built on each push to the git repository
  4. You want to track remote repository changes and test (useful if you can't setup a webhook)
  5. Setup an Entropy repo with a Docker image, and how to mantain packages
In future, i'll write also a post also on how to track the packages remotely with CircleCi.
