For most of them it's simply history. They have gone into the packman repos
long ago when they did not exist in the distribution. I bet many of them can
be removed completely and some can be disabled for 12.1 and Tumbleweed, but
some must be kept for 11.4 and/or Evergreen.
But some some packages may get updates later and therefore may become newer
than the 12.1 ones in future. For those packages it may be better to keep them
enabled even when they have identical contents as packages from 12.1. Else our
users are forced to hop between repos with vendor changes all the time.
I will check my packages (mostly perl packages needed for xmltv) and disable
and remove what's not needed anymore.
I think it would be a good idea to have a regular packman cleanup day ;-) and
remove such (partly) obsolete packages.
