Ok I guess I am confusing something or other
I tried your emacsconfig from github.
First time it took some 15 minutes to download all the packages (near 60M).
Ok... One time downloads are fine

But thereafter I remember seeing network like calls every time I start emacs
Switched back to my init
Now I again switch to yours and I dont see them...
So as I said must be confusing something...

So in general is that if we switch to req-package, all that was originally
