[Mageia-sysadm] The Hydra Nature of the horde-* packages

Hi all,

I just rebuilt a few horde-* packages for which there were missing
dependencies in http://pkgsubmit.mageia.org/data/missing-deps.i586.txt , but
now there are more that are not there:


This reminds me of the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lernaean_Hydra where if you
cut one of its heads, then two grow instead. 

How can we resolve all the horde dependencies for good? Why do they reappear?
What is the underlying problem?

I'm CCing it to mageia-sysadm because it may be a Sys admin problem.
