e.g. as update repository.
great, at least someone got my point, i think i have said that in the
beginning of this thread or the related one for mgaupdate...

I'm not a rpm macro guru, but i think we should change mkrel for that

a bpmgaX package could always be uploaded without respecting any
upgradable rules...
