Re: [opensuse-buildservice] Why are my tumbleweed builds failing when they work for 13.1?

One example is libpff:

Those libraries are in 13.1, so they should be in Tumbleweed? Why the

Is this still happening? Tumbleweed should be based on 13.1 now, so it
"should" work, unless I've messed something up?

First, this is a low priority for me. I can just disable the
tumbleweed repo for builds and no one will complain.

=== details

I just triggered a rebuild of libewf inside the security repo:

It still fails tumbleweed builds with:

[ 39s] error: Failed build dependencies:
[ 39s] pkgconfig(libcnotify) >= 20120425 is needed by
[ 39s] pkgconfig(libcpath) >= 20120701 is needed by
[ 39s] pkgconfig(libcsplit) >= 20120701 is needed by

I have this in the specfile, but I don't see why it would be a problem
for tumbleweed:

BuildRequires: pkgconfig(libcaes) >= 20120425
%if 0%{?suse_version} > 1230
BuildRequires: pkgconfig(libcnotify) >= 20120425
BuildRequires: pkgconfig(libcpath) >= 20120701
BuildRequires: pkgconfig(libcsplit) >= 20120701

The above works fine for 13.1 and factory since the suse version for
both is greater than 12.3 and packages at or above those version
numbers are available. I assume tumbleweed sets "suse_version" to

One potential weirdness is that BuildRequres packages are actually
versioned as 0~20130609 etc. I've found that for normal OBS builds I
have to leave off the 0~ in the BuildRequires line. Even in tumbleweed
it seems to work fine for libcaes above, so why is it failing for
libcnotify, libcpath, and libcsplit?

FYI: I have 3 other packages in the security repo (libpff, libhmac,
libolecf) that are also failing for the same basic reason, so I don't
think it is a package config issue, but it maybe something with how
the security repo as a project is setup.
