I do not "judge them as bad". I see flaws in the development model (e.g.
a single individual doesn't scale). And in particular, in the third
paragraph in the message you've linked, I make clear that I don't condemn
3rd party packages wholesale.

Still I'm free to advocate repositories which do not fork Fedora Core
development and hence protect newbies from running into trouble.
