Would you mind telling why so consider it bad? I like the repos packaged, so I
don't have to explain to others how to get them. This way, it's a magnitude
easier. It solves a problem I have.
Some time ago, I wrote rpmdistro-repoquery wrapper around dnf
repoquery for doing stuff like this. That might help for you too.
I've actually seen this (when mentioned couple week ago somewhere on a mailing
list) and while powerful, it was a bit more complicated for me to use. For my
own problems, having the epel repos is what I need. rpmdistro-repoquery wrapper
can optionally use the packaged repos as well if desired (but doesn't have to).
