that there are other projects depending on it, so they get a message
if they try to disable the sle10 project repo.

And what I actually want is to design and document a best practice how
projetcs should interact in the software integration process, how
project releases are done, so you can rely on another project without
copying or linking it's base packages in.

Can I suggest that projects have explicitly, as part of their definition, the
projects on which they depend / are built. That would allow the package
dependency trees to start with a repo dependency tree. I have had different
problems where two projects included new (and incompatible) versions of a
package in the base system. There were no warning about the impending
breakage, and it took a lot of work to unwind.
