RPM Packaging for OpenStack is an cross-distribution and cross-vendor effort to create common templates for building OpenStack packages for RPM based Linux and OpenStack distributions. The project was started with the goal of unifying the independent packaging efforts of RDO and SUSE, but is really open for anyone who wants to contribute RPM packaging spec files for any distribution.


The goal of the project is to build up a central repository for RPM .spec files and in the longer run unify the downstream packaging efforts into one jointly maintained upstream project. We intend to also maintain the packaging of the stable/ branch lifecycle of the OpenStack Mitaka release.
