That repo should drop the package ideally.

I agreed, once there is no user demand for the kmod and once ntfs-3g is
clearly better.

A lot of people continue to believe old information that Fedora does not have any NTFS support and this is the primary reason for them going to third party repositories. If end users are aware of better functionality in ntfs-3g compared to kmod, the demand would be drastically less.

It is confusing end users into believing that Fedora itself doesn't support NTFS and the FUSE module in Fedora is way better.

Yeah, while at it let's drop Gnome from Fedora, KDE is way better.

This is not a meaningful comparison.
