In my experience packages that need dependencies from more than one 3rd 
party repo tend to be problematic.  The more different repos required 
the more problems with conflicts between repos and different packaging 

If you can confine your dependencies to at most one or two repos, then 
life will be easier for both you and any potential users of the 
packages.  Again, once you have working packages, then offering to 
contribute and maintain them at the repo[s] on which they depend would 
be a good idea.
