Totally agreed, everything about that term is negative, and it does
nothing but convey contempt for people's valued contributions. If I
were just looking through the mailing lists archives and considering
contributing to Fedora in some way, and saw contributers referred to
as "package monkeys", I wouldn't hang around long. I find the word,
and the attitude it conveys quite offensive.
