[opensuse-buildservice] Questions for games:* repos

During the openSUSE Packaging day, I created packages for FreeCol (as wished
per Wishlist).
The game is based on Java and thus I had to base the 'build repo' on a Java

Now I would like to move the game to games:strategy:turn-based, where it
actually belongs. But this won't work, as there is no Java available in all
those build repos.

In plus I see a 'issue' with the linked libraries. A lot of Links basically not
helping a lot.

what do you think if we restructure a bit like this (example from

Games:strategy:turn-based builds against games:libs repositories (instead of,
like now, against openSUSE_xx.x)
This offers all the libs available in games:libs at any time and reduces the
need of the links / aggregates.

games:libs being built against the JAVA repositories, as I think there will be
more games coming with potential Java requirements (I was looking a bit into
Slam Soccer).

The Java remain, as is, built against the openSUSE_xx.x repositories.

Any comments on this? Or any good alternatives on how I can move FreeCol (and
future probably Slam Soccer) to the games:* repositories?

Thank you very much for your thoughts!
