The decision was to recook the installer to be compatible with yum.
That is definitely a good decision going in the right direction.
Separately, IMO removing an everything button, which serves as
recommendation or guidance, is also a Good Thing.

Somebody churns out the work, they make the decisions.  If you made a
better solution, offered patches and still RHAT ignore you then you will
find me making harsh complaints at RHAT and supporting your alternative.
 If you don't want to make any effort, but demand that the skilled
people responsible for it simply do as you would like then it's
fundamentally a childlike position experienced by MSFT users, where they
are not empowered to fork it.  You ARE so empowered, you are limited
only by your skill and the urgency of your desire to make what you want
real.  If RHAT ignore a superior GPL'd version then they are blatantly
failing to do the right thing and deserve opprobrium.  But if they
ignore your or my "mailing list theories" who can say.
