That already exists in Package-kit catalog schema
<http://www.packagekit.org/pk-faq.html#catalogs>.
I wonder why catalogs are such an under-utilised feature. Or are they
used a lot and I just havent seen them around?
In any case, why not have a URI like other official Fedora
repositories like extras, rawhide, fedora10 etc? That can solve inter
repository dependencies.
