That might happen. Especially if to many people start
their own repository instead of contributing to RPM
Well, I'm mostly a lonely guy and I used to be a distro
hopper. I even switched to XP for my home systems for
almost half a year, disgusted by the poor QA in most of
the distros. I only went back to CentOS as a *compromise*
-- you know, CentOS-5 is the new WinXP.
I don't think this makes me appropriate for a RPM Fusion
That is because we look for somebody to do be kind of
"release engineer". Nobody really stepped up yet and
RPM Fusion is thus for now careful to officially
announce support for EL & EPEL.
But iwth a bit of help it can get runing properly in
one or two weeks afaics.
Well, I still won't use something with almost everything
in "testing". (And I 'liked' the way KB almost called me
an idiot when I mentioned that centos.karan.org
everything for 5 in "testing" since 2007.)
Can be done, just needs somebody to take care of it. The
Fedora maintainer of vlc even showed a bit of interest
iirc. Ohh, any mplayer is in the testing repos
Yes, I know MPlayer is there. VLC is not.
And you expect people to trust your brand new repo more?
NO. When have I said that?
How many contributors does it have?
Zero to one.
What will happen if one or two of them (you for
example) get married, one or two childs and a new
exhausting new job over the next few months that
leaves spare time to nearly 0 hours a week?
Well, Ubuntu and openSUSE are always there, if Fedora is
Then help RPM Fusion instead of competing with RPM Fusion
But... would RPM Fusion include weird things such as GIMP 2.3.15
as the last pre-2.4 version that builds without the need to
upgrade GTK+? (2.3.15 is really almost 2.4 in functionality, which
is tremendously improved over 2.2.13.)
I bet not. So I will still need my repo for this kind of stuff.
