With many packages, it’s easy to test that the package itself builds after a major change, e.g. a version update. But once you add the package to your devel project or to factory, you notice that other packages do not build anymore due to your new package.
So, what can you do? You can create your own project in the openSUSE Build Service that contains your package and create links for those packages that need your package during build. That way you can find out which packages fail and fix them – instead of submitting your package to the devel project or factory and get lots of failures.
Do you have other tips about the Build Service? Please post them!
