One option is that you can toggle off the "auto createrepo" feature. As
long as this is off, you will build the repository in separate directory
named "devel". When you toggle it ON back again, the repository should be
regenerated with the new packages.

I don't think it's possible, but forking is not an option in this case (too
big). Besides, I've got the order, that's not the problem.
Another possibility is the fork, but forking such large project would be
Actually another possibility is to build in **separate** project against
the main, large project (build time additional repo). Then, when ready,
you could "fork back" the new project into the main existing project (we
should call this "merge" in future). There's at least this small bug
so honestly, this isn't well known and tested feature and I'd encourage you to
