[opensuse-buildservice] A collaboration problem
I'm continually coming across a collaboration problem with spec files and changes files when working on a package in my home:plater projects and sub projects in which I keep the packages where I'm the primary maintainer mostly from multimedia. When I wish to check a package through the devel project to factory, I find that another users changes to the files are marked for deletion. The only way I can work around this is to delete my package and rebranch it or checkout the changed files from the devel project to my home project package's local copy and then redo my changes. In the past this problem caused a conflict which was even more complicated to repair so this is definitely an improvement.
Isn't there an easier way to merge my changes with the other ones? There's also a problem that came up where I resubmitted a package to factory when it had been fixed by another user and submitted already with no notification to me. I'm a busy maintainer and struggling to catch up after an absence and this involves working on more than one package at once, currently blender and lilypond which on a difficulty scale of 1 to 10 lilypond must rate at 9 and blender at least deserves a 7.

One other feature from the old style build service that I would like to see returned is the ability to copy a tarball directly from upstream without involving source services. I have a real maximum upload speed of 64K bits per second but can download at 384K so you can understand why I need this feature, the new blender tarball took a long time to check in. Currently the copy from url service causes problems with factory.
