That is too simplistic and gets close to a myth. In fact almost all
current bigger repos existed before fedora.us and were thrilled by the
idea of getting a common project going. It turned out that fedora.us
was not interested in a cooperation but more in a cloning (primarily
of freshrpms then) and competition.

This is what drove repo maintainers back. Personally I favour heavy
procedures.

Or you refrain from creating even more overlaps/incompatibilities and
submit your changes right into freshrpms.

Bad idea, but I see that the communication was initiated nevertheless
(good! :).
