thank you very much for these information, of course it is absolutely
no problem to provide a single Data-RPM for ALL distributions.

I have two questions on this topic now:
- Can you point me out on how to 'disable' the build on different
distributions (or even better: disable all except one?)

And then more a endu-ser related question:
Let's assume I build the Data-RPM for openSUSE 10.1 (as noarch of
course), then if somebody subscribes the 10.2 repo, there is no problem,
as the ufoai rpm has a 'requires ufai-data' statement, it will be
But if somebody subscribes the 10.2 repository, the data-package would
not be found. Any suggestions for a filesystem link in this case?

The concern is especially important for people that are using rug /
yast / 'whatever else than plain rpm' to be able to install the package
as well.
