I've definately talked to quite a few of them (online and in person) over
the years this has been going on. I even had a tor package made and
submitted it, but Enrico and my package crossed paths and his was a day
earlier, so his "personal" version instead of a "fedora" version got

I don't care who maintains it, as long as we can get the package up to
spec so upstream does not feel they need to require to tell their
users "don't use the fedora package, use our rpm". That, and the
repeated tor discussions on package guidelines violations clearly
shows a maintainer issue.

I'm getting seriously tired of this tor package discussion every six
months. Seriously, just rip out the childish %post crap, and remove
all the non-fedora initscript sub package nonsense. This is not the
Enrico Project.
