No, it doesn't work like that.
If you just want to disable all autogenerated dependencies on your
package, don't bother messing with depgen excludes. Just add this to
If you do need more fine-grained then define a macro for the filter
regex and use that with both __provides_exclude and __requires_exclude
to avoid duplication. In some circumstances it's easier to filter by
path instead, eg __provides_exclude_from (and same for requires). See
http://rpm.org/user_doc/dependency_generators.html for details.
