    Hi
    As in a 32bit repository? If so by default it adds the 32bit repo, just
    disable it and/or remove from the repository configuration.

    32bit libraries are still built if required, as in having a
    baselibs.conf file.

    I just checked other repos, like https://build.opensuse.org/package/s...SUSE:Tools/osc and it is the case everywhere.
    I dont get the reason for this, as Leap is only availabe 64 bit - what most people regret

    Hi
    That's just because the project uses the defaults and no maintainer has bothered to disable. Plus there is no reason someone can't build a 32bit version of Leap (This has been discussed many, many times) and maybe easier to leave it enabled in case someone decides to and needs the build tools.

    And yet no one has stepped up to to this, plenty of words from the people who want it, but no action from those people who complain, you can lead a horse to water (OBS), but you can't make it drink (do the work).
