I suppose I should be transparent about what I'm trying to accomplish:
At $WORK, we produce SUSE-based appliances for customers, ultimately
delivered as an OVA.
Internally, we do not use repositories for deployment via autoyast;
we have some home-rolled mechanism that is showing it's age.
I've been exploring, with some success, using a single private
repository, to contain our RPMs of multiple releases, and with
'zypper', I can with fine detail, describe installation and upgrade
tasks. (I'm using 'createrepo' to manage that metadata.)
I'm now exploring deployments via autoyast, and am finding I don't
have the fine-grained control that zypper offers, to declare 'deploy
with version 4 vs version 5'.
I was considering your suggestion, maintaining a meta-RPM that
called out specific dependencies, but as I would implicitly want
multiple versions of that meta-RPM, I still suffer from the constraint
of <package> in autoyast not letting me call out version numbers.
It's entirely possible there's richer metadata in my repo I can
manage (for example, I don't really get 'products' yet) that would
get me over this planning, if this tactic was in fact possible.
