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 ...

Because that was used to implement foo ~> 1.1.2

But isn't that already supported via the automatic provides:

Provides: rubygem-foo-1_1 = 1.1.3

and the corresponding automatic requires:

Requires: rubygem-foo-1_1 >= 1.1.2


Is it just a historical thing which happened before your revamp
introduced the automatic provides/requires?
