Another question I have has to do with rpm selection.
Let's say we have a package, foo, which lots of other packages depend
on (BuildRequires: foo).  Let's also say that foo has been replaced by
bar, and bar's specfile has this:  "Provides: foo" and "Obsoletes:
foo", and that foo and bar and the other packages are all in the same
project.  Why isn't bar being installed in favor of foo?


I see. So in summary, the OBS doesn't look at Obsoletes for
preferential rpm dependencies. However, it would appear that it's not
looking that Provides, either: the package "bar" is using Provides:
foo and yet it is not, apparently, being considered for dependency
fulfillment for other packages in the same project. I'm unclear as to
whether or not this behavior is expected.
