And how are they supposed to do that? I'm trying and failing to follow
the logic here. RPMfusion and other repos are not enabled automatically
by the Fedora installation process; the user has to take specific action
to enable them and should be aware of the potential consequences. Are
you proposing to outlaw third-party repos? If not, what are you
proposing in order to "keep people from crashing their new systems"?
