my last attempt for this didn't get much feedback so I try to keep it
short this time...for more details see the old thread at:
This time I am just asking to give it a try. It's implementation is
trivial and if we feel it wont work out we could easily remove it later.
If there are no real objections I'd like to implement this soon; let's
say next week. Even if you don't see the benefit right now I would be
pleased to at least give it a try.
The idea can be summed up like this:
* don't break packages intentionally
* don't push incomplete rebuilds
* a global staging repository for collaboration
its more similar to your ~/staging dir than a regular repository
* mostly meant for incomplete rebuilds
* will be excluded from mirroring (for now)
I am open for any questions or suggestions. Thanks for reading,
