You could simply run a script

Which one? If there are conflicts they are at file level which is
(was?) always a problem for the main Fedora repos within themselves,

Check a list of package names. That will catch the many obvious duplicates in your repo now. It is not that hard to look over the whole list manually either. We will worry about filenames later.

So when talking about duplication of work/efforts one needs to check
what was really the duplicate, just blaming ATrpms for carring
duplicates, when these are actually ancient packages is wrong.

The point is not about finding blame. It is just that you evidently have a lot of packages in your repo, you don't need to anymore. Just drop them in your repo and we can avoid conflicts for those.

Otherwise, you are free to import and maintain the packages directly in the Fedora repository instead of your own which will work just fine as well.

There are dozens of third party repositories and asking every maintainers to cross check the entire list isn't that feasible. When it is, I am all for it.
