Well, if it needs to be written publicly, a responsive upstream who is
also a Fedora packager and that can push fixes to core libraries in
Fedora as needed (and check we do not miss anything) is a major boon.

Not only Behdad is a responsive upstream for his own stuff but he's
also often pushed fixes for other projects whose canonical upstream
had postponed fixing indefinitely.

The rpm side of packaging is important, but mature packages do not
have a spec that changes every month and do not need an rpm expert to
maintain. Being able to fix the packaged stuff has more value than
understanding rpm arcanes.
