the merger of repos is already happening at the yum layer.

On the client's side - With a combined Everything+updates, this would

It's one of the aspects which made me said "a combined
Everything+updates shifts costs from client to server".

except they wouldn't be merged on the server side -it would just be
additive.


We wouldn't be talking about removing the original GA set - just adding
updated pkgs into the path.

Woa!!! With all due respect, but this would seem an stupid and silly plan to me.

So you'd still have the number of pkgs -just
all in one repo, that you have to download all of the metadata for all
of the more often, despite that 15K of them don't CHANGE.

this is why it is less good for our users.

Yes - cf. above. I have nothing to add.
