Re: [opensuse-factory] splitting the update repo in oss/non-oss?

Hi,

openSUSE currently has separate repos for free software according to
the free software definition and software that is not free according
to that definition (*:NonFree projects in obs). There's only one
update repo though that mixes both types of software again.

Question is whether we should clean that up an have two update
repos. One for oss and one for non-oss. Advantage of two repos is
the clear separation of non-free components of course. You can't
accidentally build against non-free stuff then.
Disadvantage might be that this would add two more repos to a
default installation (the non-oss update repo itself and a separate
debuginfo repo).

Any opinions on the matter?

I'd say split update, to make sure non-free stuff doesn't "pollute" free
repository.
