Also, it's good to have allies on the inside. See jpackage FAQ about
"I tried to install foo on Fedora Core 2, but got lots of error
messages and/or things don't work":

Note the line:

"""This issue should be fixed in Fedora Core 3, thanks to Red Hat's

Google cache from one of the messages since the archive is broke:

Sound familiar? And, in about 6 months "Core/Extras vs 3rd Party"
might show up on this list again...
