OK, it would seem to be an advanced project flag but I'm having trouble
changing it to verify my guess...

osc meta -e prj monkeyiq:home

yes, this is defined in xml schemas, but not yet supported in the backend.
So this have no effect atm.

All what you can do atm, is to change this settings directly in the spec


Hmm, after a little digging this is what I came up with, mainly posted
as a kickoff point for others and in case other ml readers have a better

This seems to work for F7,F8 and opensuse 10.3.

I already had at the top of the specfile;
%define name foo

Directly adding the debuginfo macro expansion after my own package
metadata at the top of the spec...
%package debuginfo
Summary: Debug information for package %{name}
Group: Development/Debug
%description debuginfo
This package provides debug information for package %{name}.
Debug information is useful when developing applications that use this
package or when debugging this package.
%files debuginfo -f debugfiles.list

And after calling %makeinstall

Not quite as easy as I'd hoped but makes for a much leaner download with
the possibility for debugging if desired :)
