b) When you use osc build to do a local build test, then in most cases
letting it take a day to build a package is no problem, as you checkin
a working package instead of building the package on server.

Are you saying that I can build the RPM locally, and then upload it
into the OBS repository? If so, that's cool, I was not aware of that
option (how do you do it?)

No. You build the package locally for one ore more distributions using nearly same environment as the build hosts do (there are fine differences :-)

After that succeeded, you get a RPM for your choosen plattform (or for more than one). Afterwards you upload you sources, spec files, whatever to the OBS and OBS generates the package as well.

The difference is: You're sure it will work. No need to wait for it and see if it is all right, as you already tested locally.

And if you really need the RPM immediately, install you private one. It is equal to the OBS version (except for release number)

Nevertheless I'm pretty convinced there are still situations, where blocked
state is wrong, especially with aggregates.

Do you consider the situation I described as one of those?

Don't know. I'm not the one to decide this. The problems I had have been very hard to track donw, but my aggregates have all been removed and replaced by better repository assignment.
