I've run into a couple of issues for which I can find no resolution,
looking for some help. I'm running a private OBS to do Meego builds
for arm, and in two case I seem to have gotten stuck due to the same
problem, that my project inherits the prjconf from the repository.
Here are the 2 cases:
1 - in one project (call it project A), I'm trying to rebuild a
subset of packages from another project (call it project B), except
that I'm replacing a few (bash, coreutils, etc) with busybox. The
problem here is that projectA then has busybox but when anything gets
rebuild in project A it loads bash and coreutils still because project
B (which is the repository) has these rpms in its prjconf file
2 - I'm trying to create 1 rpm which is just an aggregation of
various rpms. So I have 1 project which creates this rpm, and then I
with to use that rpm in the prjconf of projects that use this project
as repository, but it still pulls in this project's repository's
prjconf, which then pulls in all the original rpms which causes

I would really want to have an option to say "don't inherit the
project conf" but there doesn't seem to be such an option. Any

There's no "don't inherit" option, but there's a way to remove the
things you don't like:

Required: !coreutils

will remove "coreutils" from the required list,

Required: !*

will wipe the list. You probably need to modify the "Preinstall",
"Required" and "Support" lists.
