There is no anti 3 party repository stance in the sense that there is
nothing in the formal Fedora repositories working actively against them.
If there are bugs in any of the packages within core they should fixed
regardless of the 3rd party repositories which may have helped uncovered
the problem. In other words they are just routine bugs addressed in
bugzilla. No big board of (anti) cooperation required.
