Openrepos - how to depend on a package from another repository?
 
What is the best way to add a dependency on a package in someone else's repo? If I simply put it as a dependency in the RPM, installation fails unless that repo is already enabled in Warehouse. Is there a way to make my repository depend on another? Or should I re-upload the packages to my own repository as well?

The repo needs to be enabled, the best way is to ask users to enable the repository needed, personally, I prefer to include my own builds tho not being that dependent.

you can only depend on packages in own repository

Not really so, but technically, yes, simpler for users installing.

well yes, you should depend on own or system packages, but you can do what you want :)

So it seems that the consensus here is to re-upload the packages to my repo?
