[opensuse-buildservice] lingering support for publisher, and repository output format
Does the publisher support some sort of "lingering" for already published, but
stale, packages? If a republish of the repository happens after libzypp has
downloaded the metadata, but before it actually downloads the binary package,
the attempted download fails with ENOENT because the old package will be just
removed. It would be cool if the old binaries will remain for a short period of
time until they are finally wiped from the download repository.

Neither YaST nor libzypp handles such ENOENT, as a result unattended
installations will run into a hard error.

It will eventually help if the published binary packages do not change name. I
think it will be more robust if they are published as 'arch/name.rpm' instead
of 'arch/name-version-revision.arch.rpm'. Does the publisher support that?
