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.
