Is this feature and others which can be defined in the _link file and in
the xml describing the repository documented somewhere in detail?

It is partly explained here:

Just added a link to official docu to the side bar, but informations about the
_link handling is missing there :/

Hello everyone!

I have started working with osb a month ago and I really love it! Well

I have a specific question, maybe someone can answer it:

I want two build two versions of an executable file and provide this
file via different rpms (At the end three packages shouldresult:
package, package-cgi-withfeature, package-cgi-withoutfeature).

Is there any way to handle such things within _one_ spec file? I can
configure/make the package twice and copy the resulting file somewhere,
but I don't know a way to bring it back to it's position in the
filesystem before I enter the related %file section.

hm, you can via two repositories. Having something like

Actually it works also with a source link:

%if %{?small_build:1}0
Name: small
Name: big

Than create another virtual package in the same project with a source
link. The source _link file should look like:

<link project="myproject" package="theotherpackage">
<topadd>%define %small_build 1</topadd>

So the second build will get the macro defined. You need to create the
source link only once and can work only on the spec file in the other
