When building x-distro on OBS you don't build one package for all distros. The 
OBS builds one package per distro and you may have to use if-clauses in the 
spec, when macros, package names and things like that defer between the 

And you can't rebuild the srpms on other distros without editing the specs 
because there are obs specific macros.
