[opensuse-buildservice] Dependency resolution for rpm packages with same name

Is it possible to have two packages with same name and different versions in
single rpm repository of OBS project?

Currently I have:
- package pkg-old with subpackage libdep-1-1.1.rpm providing
- package pkg-new with subpackage libdep-2-1.1.rpm providing

Non-suffixed is not provided at all.

When I try to use libdep for different apps, applications using are
fine, but for ones requiring OBS reports 'nothing provides', though I can see this tag in 'Provides' list for package in

Moreover that: when I try to add synthetic rpm tag using 'Provides:', this tag
is generated successfully, but does not help to resolve the situation.

As far as I understand, the repository is sorted in alphanumeric order and only
first libdep-1-1.1.rpm is processed when dependency tree is constructed.

The RPM itself is capable of distinguishing these packages, so it's just OBS
internal thing. Is this a bug or planned behavior?

Thank you,
Slava Barinov.
