You need one of these repos for each of the hotspot group repos, 
otherwise the changesets won't be correct. You also need an Oracle 
employee to then push the change through JPRT - and that would be a lot 
more effort than the existing processes as "we" would need to clone the 
external repo first, re-parent the clone to the group repo, re-sync from 
parent if needed, then do JPRT submit. Plus you need someone to update 
these repos each time the "parent" gets updated.

So a simple enough idea, but the logistics are more complex.
