I still fail to see how fedora-usermgmt "tears on our nerves" (besides
this discussion). Can somebody *please* show me two detailed examples
where using fedora-usermgmt in a package does something bad/odd on
peoples systems in the default install (e.g. in case the admin didn't
set it up)? tia!

My take: For EPEL5 maybe (as EPEL is starting now), but only if we
really really have to. For EPEL6 and later: By all means no -- there
should be enough time to work out and test a solution in Fedora land in
time for EPEL6 that fits both the needs of Fedora and EPEL.

I still fail to see why. These seems to be a lot of FUD around.
