I suspect its described on the wiki, but I couldn't find it.
As an example, I maintain sleuthkit. Looking in 3 repos I see:
sleuthkit | 3.2.3-10.1 | x86_64 | security
sleuthkit | 3.2.3-3.5 | x86_64 | factory-oss
sleuthkit | 3.2.3-2.1.3 | x86_64 | openSUSE Current OSS
As of a few days ago, they all had "release: 0" in their respective

-2, -3, and -10. Is that right?
If I push the code in security to factory, will it suddenly become -10 (or
Do I ever need to set the release value in my specfiles to anything but 0?
No, OBS is setting the release number during build to a proper value.
However, it is important that you have a branch (or link) in your package sources, so OBS can ensure that your development version is always higher then
the version in your submit target.
So the below behavior is by design:
I branched nikto out of the security repo to my home via the webui.
I then made a small patch and SR'ed it back to security (and it was accepted several hours ago).
sudo zypper ref; zypper se -s nikto
v | nikto | package | 2.1.1-2.1 | noarch | security i | nikto | package | 2.1.1-5.1 | noarch | (System Packages)
Intuitively (after the SR is accepted in security) I expect security:nikto to now have a equal or higher version than my home version. I think that is why I find this confusing.
