The source RPMs should be published once only, if at all. What do you

Actually no, since they differ. OBS is adapting spec files to be usable on
that particular plattform.

This may seem like a bit of a silly question, but why doesn't that
happen as part of the build?

i.e., the src.rpm is the same for all platforms/archs, and the
modifications get applied as part of building the binary package.

Why does the actual src.rpm have to be different _before_ the build?

I assume that is because of adjustments that are only done by the BS,
not when people build locally. Can these possibly be done via some
ifdefs instead, which would work locally as well?

Lars
