I don't use atrpms for my mythtv stuff, either. Needed a spec that
worked with cvs, your cvs stuff was gone, so made an updated one from
If livna wants to use my spec, they're welcome to it. Despite Warren's
assuring me that "everyone is working together" to create a global
repository (which I do think would be a good thing), I still see the
fighting between livna, freshrpms, etc. even though they're all supposed
to be working on extras together, they're still fighting it out about
things that won't go into extras.

ahh. well, not that you mention it, I see that the packaging-guidelines
wiki I thought was a redhat.com thing was actually at fedoraproject.org.
I'm honestly fed up with the whole politics of the redhat/fedora stuff
that I'm serious considering switching to ubuntu to get away from it.
I've been bitten too many times by files from competing repos not
working with each other (like just today, something conflicted, rpm
updated but apt didn't and now apt doesn't work -- had to use yum to
grab a new apt)
Anyway, like I said, I'd rather not get into this stuff. It seems pety
to me, and just gets in the way of progress as a whole.
