I'd love to add this feature to obs!

Using 'build' ends with "*** /media/dvd/suse does not exist". Reading
manpage reveals that one has to mount DVD media with RPMs. AFAIK mock
can download all packages it needs using yum, so it hardly can be
advertised as an alternative. We can try to hack 'osc build' (this would
probably involve some server-side hacking) to be able to build locally
and without OBS account.

As the name 'osc' suggests, it is intended for building build service
packages. Don't try to misuse it for things it's not designed
for. You should rather improve 'build' instead.

Why should the osc design forbid such local builds?

As far as I can see, it can be implemented with read-only guest access
(fate#306192) on the server side. The rest in osc itself should be simple.
Call it 'osc mock' ?
