I have worked on this a bit more, fixed a few typos, and clarified some parts.  In particular, I added a sentence pointing out that not all 3rd party repos necessarily work with each other.  Here is the link again.


If no one has further suggestions for edits, what is the next step to make it official?

This seems sane. It also helps protect from components that would not
replace, but obsolete other components.
