Re: [opensuse-buildservice] Patchinfo usage, downgrading via maintenance process

we made a distribution release with our OBS instance where we included a

Say we included foo 5.0 in the distribution but want to downgrade to 4.9,
codefreeze is passed, project is locked, first distributions are shipped.
Can the patchinfo checkbox "Block release?" be used for that? Like creating a
maintenance release for foo 5.0 with that checkbox enabled and then create a
maintenance release for foo 4.9?
I had success with repository priorities but that requires that the software
is not yet installed to prefer the lower version.
And zypper does not support a "ignore foo >= 5.0" syntax as it seems to
ignore certain packages.

Not sure what "block release" you are seeing, but it is probably the checkbox
for stopping the patchinfo based release process
and not the target.

the "patch" based workflow with zypper does not allow downgrades, it only does

You will probably need to issue an update with a 5.0revertto4.9 as package
version for instance.
