I have package lilypond with two spec files, lilypond.spec and

When you change the sources of a package it is always rebuilt.

I've another similar package ffado with linked ffado-mixer. This means
when I change ffado-mixer a chain of dependencies via jack will also
rebuild unnecessarily.

Change the rebuild attribute in the repository element to "local".

this will not help here, since it still looks like a source change for OBS.

The scheduler can't now, if the other spec file might be used somehow to the
other build.

The only way is to have the spec file in own package containers.

It's a rule in official repos that the package built has the same spec and changes file name as the package. Surely that can be used to detect which package to build?
A possible feature request? It would free up resources especially in a case like ffado-mixer and similar packages,
