I've started to develop sympathy for "monorepos" during the last years. To 
counter often expressed fears like excessive build and test times one has 
to point out:

Bigger (or even single) repositories do NOT mean

   - monolithic builds and test runs
   - monolithic packaging

Developers and packagers are free to model logical segements according to 
their needs.
