That's definitely a nicer, simple yet more learned way of saying things
than "package management hs a seperate database".

Thanks to you all, I certainly have a better understanding of
HowFedoraWorks now than just a few days ago, security-wise, at least.

Things are moving more swiftly than I thought. Of course, I'm eager to
know if any of you managed to read wmv at Radio-Canada. There's even a
link on the homepage:

for RDI en Direct, which is also wmv.

Soon as MediaPlayerConnectivity plug-in comes out for Firefox 3.5, I
should be able to manage by myself, I suppose, but my efforts always lead
me to a "manage" solution until now. Maybe there are better solutions.

Of course, the problems encountered there have nothing to do with Fedora,
but with the Radio-Canada/Microsoft consortium.
