I do not see a reason atm why chaining should not be allowed from a
technical POV as long as we successfully avoid circles. However, the
question is if we get a benefit from really using it - a benefit that
is bigger than the confusion that might arise from that. Not sure atm.
What do others think?


I have the following thoughts about it right now:

This is clearly not how we designed this attribute. It were meant as THE
primary place where development takes place. A place of which, by
definition, there can only be one.

Very valid thought.

Now, I see it can be desirable for users to have a defined path where
changes are moved from A to B to C and then to Factory. For instance,
it might be desirable that changes always first go to foo:KAPUTT first,
then to foo:UNSTABLE, foo:STABLE, then to openSUSE:Factory.

That just means that the "devel project" definition should be stackable, so
that the just follows on branch request, as long as a devel project is defined
(with a max limit). So this could be setup by every project/package owner
already if needed.

I dunno if the api branch call is already implemented like this.
