I bet it is documented somewhere but I'm afraid I don't know where; I
can only point you to where I would look. There is a template that osc
uses for new packages which shows examples. You see it if you enter
osc createpac <prj> <newpac>.

Then, there is a real-life example which you can look at with
osc meta Subversion neon
(the neon package in the Subversion project)

The tags themselves look like this:
<disable arch="x86_64"/>
<disable repository="SUSE_SLES-9"/>
<disable repository="SUSE_SLES-9" arch="x86_64"/>

Yes, I thought about that one when I suggested the above.
I don't have a good suggestion though, other than pointing to the right
repository by documentation, or maybe setting up a merged installation
source somewhere else. Maybe someone else has a better idea.

SUSE LINUX Products GmbH Bug, bogey, bugbear, bugaboo:
Research & Development A malevolent monster (not true?);
Some mischief microbic;
What makes someone phobic;
The work one does not want to do.
