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

No, you should get an "unresolvabe error".
But "BuildRequires" indeed prefer the exact name. Maybe that's the
issue in your case.

Yes, sorry, I meant BuildRequires.
What's the logic behind that behaviour?
