I don't care about other distrubution than Fedora.
Well, the file named "README.Fedora" I wrote is really what I meant
for Fedora. I don't want to take any responsibility for other distrubution.

The maintainers on other distribution may want to reuse what I wrote
for Fedora, but in such case the maintainer (of other distrubution)
must mention:
The notes Fedora maintainer writes are also applied to the package
distributed on this distrubition, so I bollowed the notes.

If you see something wrong on this notes please ask "me", not Fedora 

Well, I think generally the package maintainer on a distrubution
must write the notes for the distrubution (if any) by his/her
