[opensuse-buildservice] Faster Kiwi ISO product builds in OBS


Some time ago I set up my own OBS instance for building YaST installation

I noticed that building Kiwi ISO image takes too much time. It turned out that
was downloading all packages inlucluding source packages (src.rpm) and
debuginfo/debug source packages which are not used in the final ISO image at

In our case the extra packages are over 7GB in size, which is a lot (and this
for a small installation DVD, I have selected just "minimal X" packages).

So I decided to look at it during HackWeek. I wanted to get rid of the extra
which just wastes space and download bandwidth and make ISO builds faster.
And I was successfull, see more details at

So please, comment on this pull request:

I think this will be usefull also for other people building ISO images in OBS
and it
could speed up ISO builds also in the public OBS instance as well.

Thank you!
