If some software has a unique feature that I need to use right now, then it is 
always more frustating to have to create a rpm by myself than to just install 
it with yum from Fedora. But in general it is always nicer to already have a 
package, than to have to create on by myself, especially if I find the 
software not useful enough after I tried it.
