How does putting those kmods in a third-party repo fix this? And they WILL
and DO end up there. Even if you get RPM Fusion to ban kmods (which I doubt
will ever happen), they'll just migrate to another third-party repo. You
can't eliminate kmods entirely, no matter how hard you try. Having them
within Fedora would actually allow syncing the updates to kernel updates by
using a Bodhi grouped update, which would make this much less of an issue.
