please fix your repo dependencies, the scheduler needs to break them anyway,
but we might even block the entire projects later, since this could create
endless build loops. (btw these were fixed several times and come back again
always it seems)

From scheduler log (printed some several thousand times):

cycle: GNOME:Backports/openSUSE_11.1 -> GNOME:Factory/openSUSE_11.1
  breaking with GNOME:Backports/openSUSE_11.1 -> GNOME:Factory/openSUSE_11.1

Here's the issue: GNOME:Factory/openSUSE_11.1 needs some stuff to be
backported (since openSUSE:11.1 doesn't have everything it needs) to

Right. Like I mentioned earlier, since G:F is now building 2.27.x, it
may have GNOME:Backports:2.28 in its path.

However, some of the stuff in GNOME:Backports/openSUSE_11.1 also
needs packages that exist in GNOME:Factory/openSUSE_11.1 to build.

There are about 6 packages in GNOME:Backports:2.26. They have 11.1 +
updates only in their path. So how does the dependency on G:F come in?
(all this will apply to GNOME:Backports:2.28 as well)

So, could you please explain what can't be fixed without having
packages in the GNOME:Backports main project?
