We've had this discussion. We aren't going to allow a forked kernel
package. Please work with the kernel team to integrate this into the
main kernel package.

Slightly related to this and maybe relevant for the -libre discussion:

Dave, what's the status of the "precompiled vanilla kernel rpms" for
Fedora? There was the idea to put them in the unusual Fedora repos
(which I'd prefer) or in a dedicated repo on your people pages. Was it
forgotten? To many technical hurdles? -ENOTIME? Or do we stick to the
"build one yourself using rpmbuild and the magic flag if you need one"

Just wondering.
