People tend to branch it instead of adding an _aggregate so a change in
original package triggers lots of other packages.


It's down to 23 builds 4 hours later, so at least they are not in an
infinite loop.

If trying to recover some OBS resources, llvm seems like a package
worth trying kill off some branches / build repos.

I think the problem is that the wiki recommends not to use aggregates,
which seems counterintuitive.

aggregates are indeed only recommended for very extreme cases. And you need
know exactly the disadvantages of it.

Many timas an aggregate is better than a source link, though.
Source links/branches are even worse than aggregates.

But most of the time the correct solution is to just put
the repository with the needed packages in the path. You need
aggregates/source links only if
- the other packages from the repository break your build, or
- you need to have the packages in your published repo.
