Hi John,

I don't understand the above.  Maybe theres some humor that I'm missing
or perhaps you're just trolling.

In any case, speaking as someone who maintains a few (very few) packages
in Fedora Extras, I think Michael's comments are correct.  I can and
have edited packages at my convenience (through CVS) and received builds
and updates within a reasonable time frame.  And I'm optimistic that the
FE maintainer experience will get better as the build system improves.
