I think the issue is that in the past, Enricho has come across as his
way or someone maintains all of his packages. I am not sure if that
was his intent, but the feeling came across. Adding in a package for
basic configurations has been closed as a wontfix in the past.

Why does every  time this package come up we end up with the same
comments... there seem to have been several more in the old
bugzilla.us one that I cant get to.

It is a different packaging philosophy that Enricho has.. but it does
seem to be different than most packages that Fedora ships. I am having
a hard time coming up with a mainstream package that does it that
way.. which I think is what causes the large amount of cognitive
dissonance, and harsh opinions when they come up.
