I would like to try to do some RPM for ARM using OBS, but I get an

Any idea how to solve it?

Thanks for this page. How do I submit new packages which are for ARM only? Is
it the same process, submitting it to the Factory and not Factory:ARM?

The packages wouldn't be submitted directly to openSUSE:Factory but to
the most suitable development project. So if it was an audio related
package then it would potentially be submitted to multimedia:audio etc.
openSUSE:Factory:ARM is just the branch that we are using whilst we get
things working.

There is a review by the relevant development project maintainers before
they accept the submission. What you could do is email this list with
the submit request IDs with a brief explanation, or prior to submission
email this list with the package location and request a review.

The main thing here is to not be afraid to have your submission
rejected, hopefully the maintainers will explain the reason why they
have rejected it to give you a chance to rectify the issue. If there are
any problems then please just shout out and we will do our best to help.
