On the other hand, using aggregates is usually evil (just brings
incompatibilities and increases server space without need). You may want
to consider to build directly against the other project/repo. This would
solve also the long waiting time.
In that case I'm pretty sure it doesn't bring incompatibilities but the
project is actually built against the other repo so in theory everything
should just work if I'd remove the package.
But I have a strong belief that zypper would break that way on some
systems :-(
If people are using the repo and didn't install with a YMP they usually
don't know about the dependency and zypper doesn't help the user to find
the correct dependent repo, does it?

yes, that is true for now. But you can enforce this by defining requires in your package, really requiring the new version from the other project.

That is done anyway but doesn't help zypper to find it if the repo is not added in the first place.

Anyway I decided to go for it (and probably break some setups which were broken before by not having the top level project as well).
And what I found is that I have the very same issue as with aggregation :-(
The depedent packages are still blocked while the packages are built already.
Is it the same issue that it waits for the whole project to finish before blocked items in other projects are scheduled?
