Bumping a really old thread here, but again I'm noticing some
inefficiency in OBS.
If both x86_64 and i586 are enabled for a noarch package, it's built
twice, but only one rpm is created.

Good point.
Especially when just building noarch packages.

Question: is it safe for me to disable one of the archs and thus save
some redundant work for OBS? (I imagine it is)

I am doing that since quite some time now, but I am just building noarch

Question: wouldn't it be great if OBS did that "optimization"
automatically? (after all, if only one RPM is published, what's the
point of building twice?)


With best regards,
