Factory isn't that relevant here or, rather, a different topic.

I agree, I don't see why we would have wicd in Packman in the
first place, much better suited to be put into build.o.o and a
relevant repository there (and then pushed into Factory as

In any case, if we do need something that is already packaged in
some repository on build.o.o, then we can link them, e.g.:

osc -Apm linkpac \
openSUSE.org:devel:languages:python/python-urwid \

You just need to put "openSUSE.org:" in front, as that will tell
our OBS instance that it has to use the remote API to build.o.o.

Please don't link to home: repositories, for obvious reasons
(quality) ;)

But as said, wicd should be packaged on build.o.o instead.
