no, not at all..
my package is providing the required Provides and Obsoletes statements..
%if %suse_version >= 1030
Obsoletes: cg = 1.5-40
Provides:	 cg <= 1.5-40

my package is named according the name of the tar.bz2
my package is needed for a lot of packman packages, and we build only against 
packman and/or original SuSE packages, this is our policy.

no, as a lot of my and other packman packages depends on my Cg package .. 
sorry, but this is a work I won't do. Especially a lot of games and graphic 
programs depend on this package, and I provide this package since my start as 
a packager for SuSE (formerly repository suser-oc2pus) with this name. 
Simply change the packagename in the build-service...
