Todd, then he should already know the answer to his problem shouldn't
he? And knowing the answer leads to a solution. Or it should.

This list has been just full of 'Fedora bashers' lately. And most of the
bashing is about things that Fedora has no control over. Like this
'dependency problem'. I run the development branch (Rawhide) and it is
not uncommon to get 200 Megs, or more, of updates everyday. That was
everyday not every week. I don't use 'third party' software packages and
I don't have any 'dependency problems'. Ever.
