2 years ago it was decided to stop the official -deps (despite they are
included in dev still)... now you want to bring it back? (you'd have to
if you're going to roll usable binary packages or your "community
service" re-built packages are going to be broken) 

Although I as many others here prefer to roll our own due to our
configs, and not having to deal with bloat, I can see this having a
positive effect for users of a couple of distros who when they release
brand new releases, come with antiquated junk thats outdated and stays
outdated, to give those users a choice of using a modern code set would
be good, but requires long term dedication.

Kind Regard,
