Are there any existing examples that I should look at that support
patterns(.ymp files)?

KDE:Backports contains patterns for digikam and amarok, which I

created as

initial examples.

These examples seem to be metapackages and use one click - does this
with Yast? And these don't match the above (url) documentation for
I tried using this syntax without success - any ideas?

The examples, when you get them via the api "osc meta pattern" are single
pattern files. They are used to create the ymp files. (ymps are basically
patterns + repo URLs). In this way, you have only to maintain one file (the
pattern) and get automatically the ymps based on your project setup without
any additional work.

So what you get via api are patterns and what gets exported via
software/ are ymps (plus the patterns in addition inside
of the rpm-md meta data).
