I think you have an excuse for everything you do but let me just say
FTR...

- amanda packager has no problems building amanda rpm's for Fedora

- don't know anything about your specific asus motherboard but
  my suspicion is that you don't know what you are talking about.

- every else deals with bugzilla password rules without bitching and
  moaning

- too much rpm documentation... that's too rich for words

This is a participatory system - you have the source code and you can
modify grub however you see fit. You can build openssl packages however
you see fit.

This is all about you.

Craig
