Well if we don't do them they'll hit our users anyway, so I'd rather
have a SIG do the most popular right (and have users take the habit of
looking at rpms first) than have them download unknown code from the
internet and blame us if things go wrong.

And "most popular" is definitely enough volume for a SIG

Because we've sucked at intagrating OO.o extensions, and we've not
provided a credible plugin deployment alternatives, so OO.o decided
going the firefox direct dowload way was their only solution.
