If you only target Fedora, then it means that the same amount of Fedora
maintainers will maintain twofold amount of repositories. Does it indeed save
work? What's the benefit of maintaining more repositories?
My personal expectation here would be that if I enabled source-git for
my packages, I wouldn't want to touch dist-git and only work in the
source-git repos. Yes, there would still be changes coming to
dist-git, and I'd inspect those from source-git. I'd even ask
contributors to use source-git for PR contributions if possible.
Therefore I assumed you had targeted more distribution to share and
externilize the maintenance.
Maybe my problem is that I don't buy your argument that if Fedora dist-git
looks as Github, then Fedora will attract new packagers.
As I said, it's a prototype and we'll see.
Thanks for your feedback,
