For the record, there are two options to resolve the matter:

1) Enhance factory-auto checker so that it knows about this special case
2) Separate d:l:p and d:l:p3 (no links / no sub-spec files)

Both solve the issue that "osc up" took ages in d:l:p. Unrelated to that,
osc still has room for improvement here.
Good day!

I vote for the 2nd option, seems expensive at first time, but better
in long terms.


I disagree. I don't maintain many packages, but the ones I do, I know
having the spec files together makes perfect sense. I even have a
script file to generate the py3 version out of an updated py2 (or
apply spec patches from the py2 version into py3).

But couldn't you update your script to just commit the py3 spec into d:l:p3 / $your-pkg ?

Having them completely separate smells like it would create lots of
"out-of-sync" trouble.

Yes, as I said. However, it also allows both to run at different speeds. for instance, not all py3 specs added to d:l:p actually work. But they block us whenever we want to submit sth. to Factory. We have a very healthy commmunity around Python in openSUSE, so issues are going to get fixed fast anyway.
