Agreed, those are not directly related to fedora. Please understand
that most of the people using fedora runs "many community stuff" on
top of it, not only fedora shipped packages. I know many organizations
chose ubuntu because they ships may apps which fedora does not, eg

I am here trying to promote fedora with some additional community
stuff, like PVFS2, reiser4 etc. We are all here to promote FOSS and
Fedora, I believe.
