Description

Assume this scenario:

take the package util-linux: it is in ring0
a new submission comes in, that newly adds: 'BuildRequires: procps'
We add util-linux to Staging:A (as it's a ring0 package)
procps is currently in ring1
util-linux will build 'just fine' in Staging:A - as procps is there (from earlier builds)
so the staging eventually turns green
we accept util-linux into openSUSE:Factory, which in turn mean:
util-linux in Rings:0-Bootstrap can no longer build, as procps is now missing there (and we can't bootstrap the OS anymore)
there are two solutions: move procpos to ring0 (not cool: it depends on systemd-mini) or revert the change on util-linux
=> it would be good to see such breakage before we accept and have the issue effectlively in Ring0
