Most packagers were fed up even before decent policies and specifications 
existed. Even before there was a common infrastructure or Fedora had any 
packages committed. Whereas most 3rd party packagers already had more 
packages then Fedora currently. This was a very different situation.

How those policies and specifications were made and the atitude of those 
in charge towards existing repositories explain why a lot (most?) of 
packagers left frustrated. And of course the fact that some of these 
specifications made it impossible to be compatible didn't do any good 
either.

I don't really understand how the project on one hand hopes/begs existing 
packagers to submit their packages and on the other hand treats them 
arrogantly and ignores their advice. I also don't understand why the 
current negative critism towards the 3rd party packagers will get us any 
closer and I was a bit of surprised that Warren had to bring that up 
_again_.

I can only hope Red Hat's involvement can change the atmosphere a bit.
