Of course, with users who subscribe 100+ buildservice repos, there's

Get a buildservice account, link everything you want to your home, be
done with it?

err no? this is plain stupid. first of all you would/should use
aggregate. anyway just duplicating packages to avoid signing up multiple
repositories is plain stupid. it waste build time, space on mirrors.
imho it is much better to have small repositories focused on single
package groups to avoid cross dependencies.

packman is a bad example there. if you just want mediacodecs you get
updated versions of tons of other libs. and sometimes they even broken
other programs with it (libxml2 updates breaking kde's meinproc in the
past).

That process has to be improved but in theory its very simple.

yeah. it is simple just subscribe the small repositories you really
need. the most simple way might be one click installer.
