That would have been worth a large heads-up.

a) splitting off the config files from the packages was a very good
   thing! It will allow config file updating by Red Hat and/or other
   parties w/o replacing the binaries,

b) putting this into fedora-release is bad, no one wants to replace
   this package, other than fedora derived distros.

Could the config files be put into `fedora-config-package' or similar?
Please? :)
