[opensuse-buildservice] disable build of packages

Hi everyone,

we have recently added a way to disable single packages to be built. The
only way to disable packages at this time, is to use the 'osc' commandline
client. Just use

osc editmeta <project> <package>

and add the <disable>-Tag to the package metadata. You can either use:

<disable arch="<build-arch>"/>

or

<disable repository="<name-of-build-repository"/>

or both, like:

<disable repository="SLES9" arch="x86_64"/>

As there is a bug/feature in the API that strips out unkown tag (like
disable) when you'r redownloading the package metadata you'll find the
disable-tags to have vanished. So, you need to readd those everytime you
edit the package metadata until the API is fixed (which will hopefully be
the case pretty soon.)

Are there any questions, suggestions for improvements, comments or
criticism? ;)

Oh, and last, not least, many thanks to mls for implementing this
functionality.


Regards
Christoph
