Proposal for dropping packages from ovirt rpm repositories

I think that having the same package on different repositories must be avoided.

The last python-cpopen-1.3 release broke repository closure of ovirt-stable which provides a vdsm release still requiring vdsm-python-cpopen.
I think that since vdsm and other packages are delivered in Fedora repositories we should not deliver them in ovirt repositories.
An example is:

python-cpopen affects both Fedora and oVirt repositories, hitting 2 different products.
but other packages are handled as vdsm.
So i suggest to keep just .tar.gz files on ovirt site for allowing fedora packagers to build referencing the source tarball and drop at all any
package already provided by Fedora from ovirt site.

Comments as always are welcome.
