    Because most people will only need the essentials repo; and this one being
    smaller, every package management tool will run faster, having less
    metainfo to download. This also impacts less mirrors.

    It should be mentioned that a) it is still possible to use packman as a single repository by simply adding the main-URL to YaST / zypper and b) that when using one of the sub-divided repos one must always also use the "essentials"-URL.
