build service 2.1 release
is out, with a number of new features.
"Users of the Build Service may now access a new concept called
'source services'. Source services allow, for example, the automatic
checkout of source code for a package from a remote server via Git or
Subversion, building a tar ball from these checked out sources, and using
them for building a package. It also enables direct download of tar balls
from remote sites. This allows packagers to work with external sources
without downloading them to their own workstations, and makes it easy to
rebuild packages after upstream changes with a single click.
