I'm getting very tired of these generalism's of you. Most of us are not just 
volunteers, but even hard working volunteers. Terms like packaging monkeys, and 
dumping, are not nice descriptions of, and show no respect for, all the hard 
working people behind Fedora.

I for one have made sure all my packages work well with selinux targeted policy 
in enforcing mode, and I've written patches for other peoples packages too. 
I've even written for example textrel patches for SDL, but the 
maintainer doesn't want to apply them.

So in the future please refrain from such generalisms, an show some respect, or 
even better show others the respect you expect them to show for you.
