any time a pkg is updated, all other pkgs that have THIS pkg as
BuildRequire, are rebuild automatically.
That's fine and most time wanted.
But sometimes there is really no need to rebuild ALL affected pkgs, but
only the one or other.

e.g. in devel:languages:perl I updated perl-macros so that all RedHat
derivative could be build with those macros.
And with this change there is absolutely no need to rebuild ALL SUSE
pkgs, but the RedHat pkgs.
And then after doing lots of local builds you're recognizing that a
further change is needed, again resulting in rebuilding ALL, not just
those RedHat's that were "failed".

What do you think ?

Dunno what you are asking here, but you can of course disable openSUSE builds
temporarly when testing something.

I fail to see how obs has a chance to find out if a source change makes a
difference or not.
