Please check


for my reasons to step down from rpmfusion/epel. In both projects I
was a coinitiator and was burned down.

I don't want to rehash the discussion there, but I'm under the
impression that you don't know the history of it and that you think
this is just for personal pride or whatever.

FWIW rpmfusion is a 3rd party repo, very much like Dag, Dries,
PlanetCCRMA, CentOS Extras, KB, ATrpms etc. I'm not placing any
authority hierarchy upon any of these, and I'm expecting similar from
the other repo maintainers, of course.
