Then file an rfe. It might get done. Ranting about what you don't like
just on this list means it probably won't. why? B/c I'm busy and I don't
always have time to read all the messages on every list. So I try to
follow out the bugs that get filed. Bugzilla filing is also the best way
to let others track progress (or lack thereof) on items filed against a
program.

Packaging problems happen often when you mix a lot of repositories, yes.
Also there are a number of occasions where fedora updates-released cause
packaging problems. I've found if you don't output anything while things
are going on people infer that to be slow. If you do output something
people think things are fast. Of course you try to make it take as
little time as possible but sometimes it doesn't and rather than sit
there silently I'd love for people to know what's going on.

Please, file an rfe, then.

How do you know how fast it will come before downloading anything?

So help, then, open rfes.

You don't think that sort of comment is unnecessary and inflammatory?
