The merging of things is at the moment exactly our problem. A gcc update

I think that what would fit my description best would be to run
compilation and tests for any dependencies of any package (or set of
packages) that is to be pulled into Factory and only do make this
"merge" effective when those succeed. I guess for many packages that
would hopefully be a small set that needs to be run, on things like gcc
it could be huge, of course. The question is then if the infrastructure
is able to deal with that load - otherwise, I guess some compromise is

This is basically what Josef describes too. We'll have to try
