[packman] Something is wrong with the setup for Essentials...

Hi there,

I've been following this for quite some days now, but it appears to be a
more formal problem:

  $ osc -A pmbs buildinfo Essentials MPlayer openSUSE_Leap_15.2 x86_64 
<buildinfo project="Essentials" repository="openSUSE_Leap_15.2" package="MPlayer" downloadurl="http://pmbs-api.links2linux.de:8080/">
  <error>unresolvable: nothing provides libavcodec57 = 3.4.2-lp152.1.2 needed by libavcodec-devel, (got version 3.4.5-pm152.4.10), nothing provides libavformat57 = 3.4.2-lp152.1.2 needed by libavformat-devel, (got version 3.4.5-pm152.4.10), nothing provides libavutil55 = 3.4.2-lp152.1.2 needed by libavutil-devel, (got version 3.4.5-pm152.4.10), nothing provides libswresample2 = 3.4.2-lp152.1.2 needed by libswresample-devel, (got version 3.4.5-pm152.4.10), nothing provides libswscale4 = 3.4.2-lp152.1.2 needed by libswscale-devel, (got version 3.4.5-pm152.4.10), nothing provides libpostproc54 = 3.4.2-lp152.1.2 needed by libpostproc-devel, (got version 3.4.5-pm152.4.10)</error>

As you can see, MPlayer (btw the same problem exists for vlc)
BuildRequires libavcodec-devel, which somehow gets resolved to a version
from OBS instead of the version in Essentials:

  $ osc -A pmbs se -s --binary libavcodec-devel | fgrep 15.2 | fgrep x86_64
Essentials                       A_15.2-ffmpeg-4    Essentials/openSUSE_Leap_15.2/x86_64/ffmpeg-4-libavcodec-devel-4.2.1-pm152.3.11.x86_64.rpm
Essentials                       A_tw-ffmpeg3       Essentials/openSUSE_Leap_15.2/x86_64/ffmpeg-3-libavcodec-devel-3.4.5-pm152.4.10.x86_64.rpm

This appears to me that there is no libavcodec-devel which could require
"libavcodec57 = 3.4.2-lp152.1.2"; btw, this version is available from
openSUSE.org:openSUSE:Leap:15.2, but I don't understand why it gets
preferred over the newer version in Essentials/openSUSE_Leap_15.2

This issue is currently preventing the installation of MPlayer and vlc
(at least) on openSUSE_Leap_15.2/x86_64

Doesn anyone have an idea what's going wrong here?

TIA, cheers.
