Feature #309611, revision 1
Title: Add a "ignore" file

Buildservice: Unconfirmed
Requester: Important

Requested by: Johannes Obermayr (jobermayr)
Partner organization:

Each time the build hosts become initialized new for providing a fresh build
system. After that the defined "BuildRequires:" become copied together with all
dependencies from another host and installed on the build system. Finally the
build system is initialized and the actual build process can start.

There are often packages installed which are not really needed for the build
process but for a working system. They become installed because of a
"Requires:" tag in the actual depended package (especially
-branding-{upstream,opensuse}, .noarch [data] or very far depend packages).

With a "ignore" file you can say to OBS that e.g. package xy-data is not needed
and should not / must not be installed.

It is an addition to the "Ignore:"s defined in buildconfig.

Business case (Partner benefit): 1. Reduce data transfer to the build hosts 2. Improve speed of
initialization the build hosts 3. It could be a workaround for bug #510360
