Hmm, as I said, it's not only for this particular project that I ask,
I'm more here as a dellegate.
The change would be to extend the .repo format to support something
name=A sample repository
(optionally multiple dependencies, but that is probably nothing that
should be needed)
So, the new part would be dep-* which would instruct to link in at
least on more repo.
What other solution can you see? Of course, the user can add 2 repos,
but that's a thing more or less impossible to instruct all users.
The important part would be to have the SPEC for this .repo file set to
a new version. Of course at the beginning not all binaries will
interpret them (but they are hopefully kinda grateful on unknown
so: you think there's really nothing that can be discussed about such a
feature request anymore?
