Dont do that then ;-) install software in the standard prefix.

Well, /opt is not allowed for distributions but for 3rd party
software. I would consider some build service repos as 3rd party
software not as part of the distribution.

So, if that's agreement, let's file a bug against the build service,

Against rpmlint please

It already existed.... :
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=436992

However, I find the priority quite low (P5). As soon as openSUSE_11.1
becomes available I can't provide the package for 11.1... Do you think
this issue can be tackled before the 11.1 release?

We may _WANT_ to keep this check when building in the distribution.

But we may want not this check when building packages for this distro, but
keep them as an add-on.

In this case we need different checks for these both usecases. This is why I
think we need a :Compat project. However, I want discuss this first with our
build people.

You don't really need different checks, just a way to ignore certain
errors or to override their badness. The check that disallows /opt
is not an rpmlint check though so there is no way around it.
Solution would be to reimplement the check for rpmlint.
