the bro package on the Opensuse Build Service just moved to its final
location in network:bro. So - the obs interface for is now available at
https://build.opensuse.org/project/show/network:bro and builds for
bro-nightly will be available at
(currently it still is a 404; should hopefully be available within the
next few hours).

The binaries at the old location will no longer be updated.
