Jeff, I think I know where you're coming from, but you simply can't have
it both ways.  One either plays nice or not.

Frankly, if someone feels that they don't think it important to play
nice (and do the right thing, imo), I would rather they not be involved
in this project.

Hi Rex, I'm confused if you are suggesting you'd rather I'd not be involved in EPEL because of my above statement? That seems rather blunt and unnecessary.

The point I am trying to make is that it may be possible to write down a few guidelines on how repos should get along together but after all that is done, the amount of work to actually enforce all repos to follow those rules/guidelines will be near impossible.

Maybe I am blowing this out of proportion. Has someone proposed a set of guidelines for repos to follow that you feel would be somewhat easy to enforce?
