This means you can tell OBS to build a certain package, repository

compared between the build jobs.
Please note that you limit your package to be dispatched to a subset
of hosts. So it may dispatched way later or in worst case not at all

We do _NOT_ have a "dispatchstatus" yet which would tell if a job is

Please find details about this feature in our book chapter:
Just as an example, you may want to require a VM memory size of 2GB.
You need add a "_constraints" file into your package source with

Wouldn't it make sense how much resources a build job for
$prj/$pkg/$arch/... took the last time and use this as a constraint for
the next schedule instead of specifying this manually everywhere?
Just as an example, people may get the idea that using
may speed up _their_ build jobs by over-using the more powerful workers ;-)
