It is obviously complete madness to suggest that there would be a
single repo for everything. ;-)

Wenn schon denn schon, as the germans say. And realistic if you

You can just include upstream source URLs, maybe with MD5 sum.

Minor details. You wouldn't want to rely on servers not under the control
of openSuSE to provide the sources, though, so you can't really include
the canonical upstream URL (if it even exists). But a URL to something
would work I guess.

P.S.: So, what package is the above? md5 is not that hard to crack :)
