[packman] Interest in obs-studio build for openSUSE 13.1 which requires a few aggregated packages

I maintain the obs-studio package [0] which has been getting a fair
number of downloads [1], but currently only builds against openSUSE
13.2, Tumbleweed, and of course Factory.

A newer version of cmake is required. Sadly off by a single minor
release 2.8.11 vs 2.8.12. Similarly libqt5 is 5.1 and needs >= 5.3.
Exact package requires shown in diff [2].

If the packages are aggregated in everything works as expect.

  <aggregate project="openSUSE.org:KDE:Qt5">
  <aggregate project="openSUSE.org:devel:tools:compiler">

Is this something that is a) acceptable to do, b) of interest? I
completed this a while back when I had some interested parties on
13.1, but never pushed changes since it required the package
aggregation. Alternatively, it does not seem one can publish home
repositories on Packman which I could offer this as a special "side"
repository for folks who desired it.

Also not sure if the aggegatelist can be setup for only 13.1 instead
of all versions.
