I think that's a bit unfair. While it's certainly helpful, it's not a
requirement, to be a programmer in order to be a packager. I know very
little C, some python, but I've learned quite a bit about building and
packaging over the last few years.

You often end up with packages that you need for various reasons, but that
doesn't mean you're intimately familiar with all of them.
