I think the following is a bug:

Getting buildinfo from server
buildinfo is broken... it says:
expansion error: nothing provides mozilla-xulrunner191

Yeah, nothing provides mozilla-xulrunner191 since I'm just going to
build it?
Probably related to the new PreReq handling since that package contains
a subpackage which PreReqs %{name}?

no, actually I think I've seen this before we put the prereq handling in,
though (haven't checked) it might be triggered by a prereq in this case.

Normally, all the packages that fall out of a specfile are discarded from the
list of packages needed to set up the buildsystem. For example a specfile
foo.spec would generate foo and foo-devel, then these two packages would
not be installed during the build of foo.
Now there may be a package in BuildRequires (or in PreReq) that _requires_
foo or foo-devel.
Then packages foo and foo-devel will be discarded, but only _after_ the
expansion, so you end up with needing foo before you are building it the first

with kind regards (mit freundlichem Grinsen),
