And we are back to my original point: upstream developers often do not have the time or interest to create proper distribution packages. That's fine. Leave it to the experts. That's the whole point of a distribution: combine hundreds or thousands of disparate pieces of software into a coherent whole. Why would you expect that to be simpler than a writing a single program?
