Reviewers want the one-package structure but do not give a single argument why
this should be done or why multiple packages are bad.

I gave arguments why I chose the multi-package structure and nobody responded to
these arguments so far.


>  initng ... I still don't see it in the upcoming FC6

initng is an Extras candidate and can be added after FC6 release


> ... package that are considered 'always present', such as lvm2 ...

ok; this might be a response to my arguments. But I do not think that this is a
valid one. 'lvm2' is always present due to packaging bugs only (mixed
initscripts and core-functionality; bloated 'initscripts' package).

I can not fix the other packages because I would have to make this discussion at
lot of other packages. RH developers are usually ignorant regarding dependency
issues (e.g. look at aspell -> perl dep, sendmail -> cyrus-sasl, initscripts ->
low-level stuff) so this would be a lost battle at least in Core.

What I can do, is to package my packages properly and to separate
core-functionality and unneeded/big dependencies which is giving users with e.g.
chroots or non-SysV init a chance for a small system.
