See my reply in

I know, but for me Korora, fedorautils-installer, and similar things are
a sign that some problems in Fedora and RPM Fusion get circumvented in
to many layers instead of being solved at their root. It reminds me of a
kernel enhancement that is maintained outside of the Linux kernel: they
often solve real problems and some users love them, but it's better for
everyone to get a proper solution upstream, as that's the way to reach
the masses and make things "simply work".
