At Fedora, Red Hat developer Adam Williamson is packaging Unity because
"I wanted to check it out and figured packaging it should be about as
easy as installing Ubuntu. It wasn't, but by then my native stubbornness
kicked in and now I want to package it more or less because it's there.
I doubt it'll work terribly well . . . it'll sorta more or less work but
have lots of rough edges and not be something the upstream Unity team
would be happy to show off."

Williamson stresses, though, that his efforts are personal. "There's
been exactly no distribution-wide discussion of this; it's not some kind
of official approach to Unity or anything like that. Fedora as a whole
has no policy or opinion on Unity. Ditto for Red Hat."
