And I looks like FESCo will disallow kernel module packages soon
completely -- http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/DavidWoodhouse/KmodProposal
was on the agenda for yesterdays meeting, but was adjourned until next week.

I use the situation to bring up a question here that I asked on
fedora-devel yesterday already:
- (partly a question for the Packaging committee as well) The current
Kernel Module standard was not only meant for Fedora, but for RHEL also
and a suggested one for 3rd party Fedora-repos as well. Are those still
a goal? If not: will the stuff simply be removed from the Guidelines, to
make them easier to read?
