Hi all!

A week ago there was a discussion on packaging ml about "backporting of
Factory packages" initiated by Stanislav Brabec. He wrote that he has
script to handle BuildRequires and Requires replacements in spec files.
(That means, automatic adding of %if %suse_version when needed). We
learned that BuildService already does this but only for BuildRequires.

What about Requires? Any news on this issue? It would be really great if
BuildService took care of both BuildRequires and Requires changes. More
and more -devel packages are being created in Factory and -devel
packages tend to require another -devel packages, which complicates
building against older repositories. Global package mapping should be
made publicly visible and there should be an easy way how to add new
mappings to this global list (contact to competent person is sufficient).

Best Regards / S pozdravom,
