Well, link expansion happens on the server side... maybe it should be
possible to expand the link based on *that* revision of the target
package where the link still applied.

It would be possible, but what would be the benefit ?

osc would give you a working copy containing your changes.
You could then properly (easily) diff against a checkout of the target
directory, see what's going on and merge the changes.

That seems easier to me than juggling with reject files from failed

well, that is way svn, cvs and so on is working. So I suppose they have some
point ;)

It would mean that you revert the changes from others when you submit

I think such a checkout would result in a working copy that is not up to
date - and thus can't be committed. So I don't see this danger.

What is needed is to fix your changes for the latest version what exists
in the package where the link is pointing to.

Since this can conflict, it is not possible to do non-interactive. So I
doubt it can be done on the server.

My idea is to just generate a directory of the last non-conflicting
stage. So there wouldn't be a conflict. The assumption is that the link
has applied at *some* point in the past.

okay, but how does it help you to adapt *your* changes instead of the other
already accepted changes ?

What would also help is if the buildservice would give me *one* patch
instead of 10, because a single patch would be much easier and more
useful, than a (possibly long) series of stacked patches that
(sometimes) revert each other and so on. (Been there...)

hm, could be done, I think, but esp. in case you submitted the first 3
already, they got just accepted later, you can not that easily merge patch 4
and 5 anymore for example.
