Re: ATrpms and FC5/RHEL5



Hi

The fact of the matter is, is that the user *chose* to integrate the
third party repo into their system. The act of doing this should come
with responsibility. Protecting them will do nothing to help the
situation.
When users choose to use third party repositories they are in many cases not aware that they are not just adding packages but also replacing existing ones in their system which might be a divergence they desire. The discussions initiated by one such user along with various posting in fedora forum, user lists and irc channel is enough proof that the problem exists. Also dag, one of the third party repository packagers has essentially required the exact same thing before.

Claiming that the problem is theoretical is ignoring the issue and calling it politics or FUD is not going to change that.

regards
Rahul
