I can see the need for possibly 2 different repositroies here to provide 
diferent strokes for different folks :-


centosplus-base linked against base - usable for people who only want to 
include particular packages and want them linked against base + updates.

centosplus - where packages are linked against other packages in 
centosplus - usable by people who want all the latest & greatest.

(or centosplus and centosplus-ng - that is up for discussion )

Once we have the new builder in place it shouldnt be too much effort to 
provide both.

The same discussion presumably is also merited for what centos-extras are 
linked against ???
