Allow creation of meta-repositories

Feature state

Evaluation By Projectmanager


It'd be extremely useful if it was possible to create meta-repositories in OBS. The way it would work, is that anyone could create a project in OBS, and from there, include several other projects to combine them in one meta-repository.
It is kind of possible today if one use _links or _aggregate, but that either forces the entire repo to be built in the users own project, or requires a lot of disk space. A meta-repository would basically only create symlinks to the other projects (would not require any extra disk space, nor OBS resources for re-compiling everything in a "new" project)

I guess that's related to the "Services" concept Duncan describes in his blog: http://duncan.mac-vicar.com/blog/archives/351

Sort of. Duncan mentions an implementation of another metadata format that includes a list of repositories.

Using symlinks (or hard links) to generate repositories in OBS wouldn't require any changes to the package management stack, as well as being compatible with others (such as smart).
