I guess the problem is not so much the "real" updates, but all the rebuilds 
with little or no changes.

Maybe it would be possible to only republish the repo once every 1-2 weeks or 
something. Of course this is not a problem specific to Packman, but goes for 
any large OBS repo.

Personally I configure Apper/PackageKit to only show patches, so I don't get 
notified about the other stuff. From time to time I manually update some stuff, 
when there are actually some "real" updates.

But I know a lot of people are installing all those rebuilds every day 
thinking each and every one is an important official update.
