That does not answer the question ;-)

Essentials/A_15.3-vlc links to openSUSE.org:$SOMEWHERE/vlc
Staging/A_15.3-vlc links to Essentials/A_15.3-vlc

Now how am I supposed to test something in Staging and, more important, 
how am I supposed to submit it then to Essentials with those links?

If I just copypac it to staging and then sr to essentials, the whole 
linking will probably just break horribly :-)

I probably would have changed the link in Staging to also point to 
openSUSE.org:..., but as Essentials had never built before, I just fixed 
it directly there.
