A git repo of all that would take up similar amounts of space, perhaps some few gigs less (because of compressing and delta-packing the text files). I wouldn't want to have that local ;)
It is obviously complete madness to suggest that there would be a single repo for everything. ;-)
Wenn schon denn schon, as the germans say. And realistic if you exclude the tarballs.
You can just include upstream source URLs, maybe with MD5 sum.
Minor details. You wouldn't want to rely on servers not under the control of openSuSE to provide the sources, though, so you can't really include the canonical upstream URL (if it even exists). But a URL to something like http://tarballs.opensuse.org/200aac72218de8815d6ae0ef1fb121ee.tar.bz2 would work I guess.
Ciao, Michael. P.S.: So, what package is the above? md5 is not that hard to crack :)
