I have an own OBS installation at home, running on a dual core (thus

(one more worker). The PC starts 2x x86_64 workers and the notebook
starts one i586 worker.

Unfortunately, so it seems, the scheduler is not to nice behaving in
this case. Often I see packages evenly waiting for both platforms, but
the scheduler (or whatever task) feeds i586 packages to the x86_64
workers... thus having sooner no i586 packages left and keeping the
last worker idle...

It would be better in this case if the i586 would get the i586 tasks,
x86_64 the 64bit tasks and only when the 64bits are done, those 'help'
the i586 pile up..

Can this be achieved somehow? Like always building the 'highest
architecture' available first?

and in our setup it would lead to x86_64 is done but i586 waits for
ages. the obs uses x86_64 buildhosts mainly.
