if I understand well your need is to add an RPM which is not built by
OBS in an OBS managed repository.
With your method you will need to recreate your repo metadata every time
that your OBS trigger a rebuild.

I add a similar need in the past ad this is how I proceeded.

I had to add packages in an OBS Repos which could not be to be compiled
by the OBS (DSP code), my trick has been to add a package in the OBS
which has an empty %build macro in the package spec file. In my case.
My goal was to provide binary blobs for DSP firmware and the trick was
only to have a %install macro which copied the blob in the right place.

If you need only a source rpm as said in your mail, you can also have an
empty %build macro.

I tried to add extra package(rpms) into my OBS project repo(E.g
/srv/obs/repos/project/i586), When I run createrepo in OBS server, the
repodata will change correctly, and I can use the repo to install this
extra package.

But when there is check-in to the project, and it begins to rebuild.
The repo will republished. I found OBS automatically delete my extra
package in i586 directory. And the repodata doesn’t include it any
more. How can I solve this issue?

Hope for your help.
