I remember that bs_sched used to make a significant distinction between
BS architectures and RPM file architectures. If you disabled building
quilt.i586, there would be no quilt.noarch.rpm in
/srv/obs/build/openSUSE:Factory/standard/i586/quilt, and other packages
that BuildRequire quilt would not start and instead show "unresolvable".

Oh well, I'll just re-enable the i586 build then. Thanks for the

But it would be great to encourage noarch packages to be built only
once, rather than on all architectures. That would save a lot of build
power. Noarch packages may be small and fast to build on average, but
they still account for over 13% of all packages on my openSUSE 13.1
