it's used for some (.iso?) install method, AFIACT it's eventually
glued back together when it fails to build and is generally ignored.
As "very good state" I meant that the subpackages contain everything
needed, and the binaries work flawlessly for the above use cases.
Before, in some cases I was forced to use binaries from the upstream
I started to collect the sources (the upstream repo, various branches
like ), Fedora patchset, the "dist-gits" from other distributions
listed in Repology , bug trackers), and will try to give more
informed answer to your questions once I manage to asemble something ala
src-git with pair of branches (patches/applied) per distribution.
