Come on. It does not affect just that one extern repo everybody is so adamant
talking about, it affects all of them, at least those that try to use Ports at
the same time.

If only two maintainers can fix/are willing to maybe fix meta prj
https://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-factory/2018-05/msg00151.html and
both of them are unavailable, isn't it time to come up with some holiday
plan at least?

Come on, openSUSE Ports are UNOFFICIAL [1]

The Release announcement clearly states "Leap works with X86_64 and
deployment scenarios can be run for physical, virtual, host and guest,
and cloud. Ports to other architectures like ARM64 and POWER are in
the works by the community. "

Any [$EXTERN_REPO] or anyone else trying to build against those
unfinished unofficial ports and in the process breaking their building
of the only official supported architecture really need to reassess
their priorities.

I'd strongly recommend anyone wanting to build for Leap 15 in advance
of the release focus on the only architecture that is going to be
released on May 25th - x86_64.

Anyone can always add the rest back when the Ports community
volunteers resolve any issues they currently have in their project.
