Here's a freebie: Borrow from Livna's install script. It already has
provisions for smart and apt.

Guess what: it's not free -- packaging it/adding it to the existing packages can easily sum up to and hour or two of work (sometimes even more if you want to do them properly; see https://bugzilla.rpmfusion.org/show_bug.cgi?id=13 for example). Which brings me to the point I outlined earlier: "nearly nobody wants to do the boring things or things that are only useful for other people"

Even worse: Seems the latest livna-release you get from http://rpm.livna.org/ these days also dropped support for smart and apt; I guess the livna people will readd it if somebody sends tested patches.

P.S. I would have submitted the above as an RFE a week ago but the RPM
Fusion website layout overwhelmed me.

Wanna help? The wiki afaics really needs a lot of improvements. But each day only has 24 hours and I right now put other things higher on my todo list.

It's too modern, too much low
contrast light blue on white, and required a login!

Without a login we'll get a target for spammers -- the livna wiki proved that :-/

Didn't find the create account link until today.

I see a small window in the upper right of the page that offers to create an account or to log in. Isn't that showing up for you?
