[opensuse-buildservice] Dependency resolution prefers package names rather than "provides"?

With the OBS down I can't give any example now. But if there is
packageA-devel in openSUSE:12.1 and in the devel project it is renamed
to stillpackageA-devel, the other packages in that devel project that
require "packageA-devel" seem to prefer packageA-devel to
stillpackageA-devel. stillpackageA-devel provides "packageA-devel =
<new_version>" and obsoletes "packageA-devel < <new_version>". Is this

Usually what happens is that the devel project requires the exact
version of "packageA" and the OBS gives an "unresolvable" state
because it can't find "packageA = <old_version>", "packageA =
<new_version>" hides it.
