Stupid question: does OBS require that the package name matches the
.spec filename, and/or the Name: field inside the spec file?

Afaik neither. I usually have the project name match the .spec file
name only.

Or could
you have for example


which contains

Name: rubygem-foo
Version: 1.0


If this is allowed, maybe you could have


in the same OBS project which contains

Name: rubygem-foo
Version: 1.1

and they would both get built?

Yes. I'm using this for example to build multiple versions of sblim-sfcb in
systemsmanagement:wbem for openSUSE_12.1.
contains sblim-sfcb in version 1.3.7, 1.3.11, 1.3.15 and 1.4.2

Ah, that's handy. So if the OBS does not have a limitation on
multiple versions of a package co-existing in a single project, I'm
even more mystified why there was ever a need to introduce the

Name: rubygem-foo-1_1

style of naming ...
