rpm -V should report such wrong dependencies. If it doesn't, its a
packaging fault (not requiring the correct version).

The dependencies are usually defined like this:

Requires: yast2 >= 2.16.46

We would have to add explicit

Requires: yast2 < 2.18.0

to ensure that 2.18.x package will not be installed.

Hmm, I see.

AFAIK we would have to add this extra dependency for all Requires
for all Yast packages and we would have to change this dependency for each
distribution release.

Maybe this extra dependencies could be added automatically by '/usr/bin/y2tool
create-spec' call which generates the final .spec file from

Or is there a better way?

Requiring an ABI version could solve this, e.g.

Requires: yast(abi) = 2.17
