Read the thread I started entitled "Goal: Increased Modularity". People
are saying that Fedora is aimed at distro-makers who want to create
spins of their own from Fedora. This is only possible if it actually CAN
be broken down into the pieces that you want. Currently, there are no
policies which even mention modularity, but most of the developers have
come to the same conclusion. There's a faction which believe that it's
easier to maintain something when they're all lumped together. Then
there are those who believe it's easier for individual volunteers to
maintain packages if they're cut down to smaller pieces.

Lumping multiple separately versioned, separately released entities into
the same SRPM is broken, period.

If upstream is lumping a ton of stuff into one tarball, its an upstream
bug.


Thats a very short way of saying exactly what I was trying to say, thanks!
