I want to address the issues you guys have trying to make it easy to
sync packages between jpackage and Fedora but the idea that a package in
our repository is actually a jpackage package is just plain wrong.
jpackage is a cross-distro repository, Fedora is a distro.  The goals
are different.  The requirements of each are different.  The packages
can largely be the same, but once in a while there will be things that
require local customization.  We don't just ship upstream jpackage.  We
value add and integrate them with Fedora specifics where appropriate.
