Sorry, but I overreacted because I was (and still is) slightly annoyed
about the tone your message that I replied to. I'll try to be more
diplomatic in the future.
What I meant is given the set of features PackageKit wants to have I
not think it is a good idea and will probably be confusing if both it
and Pirut are included by default in a fedora install.
No one is proposing that; that would be like installing two web browsers
in a default install.

good. glad to hear that. I think PackageKit is chasing us part way down
a blind alley, but that's one of the options available to fedora. My
saying 'I think this is a blind alley' is an option available to me.
You are entitled to your opinion. But also respect that people doing
spins / livecd's are entitled to selecting the packages they want.
Personally, I think that's a good thing.
