Sure, for the first package there is some extra work involved. I try to
help out when a RH engineer is trying to break into Extras.
And yeah, different build system means more to learn, but for myself I
keep two source dirs, one for rh internal, one for extras. the
structure is the same, make tag, make build works the same, I get emails
when my builds finish, its all pretty much the same.
I'm curious if its the first hurdle that's causing the resistance.
