[packman] moving some parts of PMBS to OBS

Many packages in PMBS are just built to satisfy BuildRequires. Only very
few of them are actually needed at runtime. Each of those packages could
be in OBS.  Doing it that way would reduce the turnaround time in PMBS I

Does anyone would object to move them to a OBS project which hosts just
those BuildRequires? What would work would be something like:

OBS gets a new project named "$whatever" which contains all the
perl/pyton/... packages. This project gets the exact same set of
repositories as Essentials has right now. Essentials in turn does not
link against (for example) "openSUSE.org:openSUSE:13.2:Update/standard"
anymore but instead to that new OBS project

Creating a new toplevel project in OBS shouldnt be that hard.
