Heh. That's why I started out asking whether there was any
chance I'd be able to persuade you. :-)
The thing is, another part of Fedora's packaging policy is to
stay as close as possible to upstream. Ideally a package would
apply no patches against upstream source; and performing major
surgery on modules is definitely not a desired way to go about
things. Second-guessing the upstream project is not a game I
particularly want to get into.
By that consideration I'm going to start out submitting the
package for review in line with how you do things in the source
distribution. I'm expecting they'll bring up the issues I've
mentioned in this thread, but then again I may well be wrong and
they'll consider it entirely unproblematic.
Thank you for all the help and information!
When I decide that the situation is unacceptable for me, I'll
the tree. I do _not_ appreciate being enlisted into
anyone's holy wars,
so unless you _really_ want to go _way_ up in my personal
play politics in my vicinity. -- Alexander
