File README of Package grafana.12967

The tarball is generated via the OBS source service, but Grafana
needs to ship the compiled frontend assets as well, which have to
be built by running yarn and grunt inside the source tree (see
This can't be done at build time on OBS, because it involves
downloading and installing packages from the internet, so instead
we have a Makefile which does the following:

- Runs `osc service disabledrun` to get the latest source tarball
- Unpacks the tarball to a temporary directory
- Runs `yarn install --pure-lockfile && grunt release`
- Adds the generated "vendor" and "public" content to the tarball,
  then compresses it with xz.
- The tarball can then be used by OBS to build an RPM.

In order for this to work you need to have npm >= 6, yarn and grunt
installed.  To get set up, run:

  # zypper in npm
  # npm install -g yarn
  # npm install -g grunt-cli

Then, to package a new release of Grafana, run `make` then `osc ci`
and you should be good.
