I was responding to Les' comment about the tools that one needs to use 
in order to package something: RPM, VCS, i18n, lib/autotool, COPR, 
Bodhi, mock, etc.  Don't get me wrong---I am not saying that there's 
anything wrong with the tools, just that they seem easy to those who 
already mastered them, but may be intimidating to the uninitiated.

This is my point, actually, that it's hard for a packaging pro to 
appreciate the confusion of a newbie. Some kid-glove treatment, and ELI5 
tutoring/mentoring might help.
