Well, I created the yum repository, CMD owned it (which was quite
normal), and I used the same code when I created mine, and added many
updates since then (my repo has more packages than the other one).
But this is not the whole story. I was already maintaining RPM packages
before we created yum repository, for Fedora and for community. My
archives say that I've been building packages since 7.2. So, which is a
fork? I don't have a definite answer ;)
Anyway, I don't want to be involved in this thread, except changing
package suffixes. Even though I believe that I should keep PGDG suffix,
I am really willing to change it, just to make sure that community feels
I created another repo, since I had ~ 40 servers that would prefer to
use *my* packages, and also I use packages on my 4 personal machines.
These were enough reasons for me to create another repository. Then, I
made it public, and many people started using new repository. During
this time, I helped Lacey whenever she asked, and I will continue
helping her anytime she wants. I hope these explains my attitude.
