Shouldn't Source0 be a real URL? What is the plan here: more repos will be added later?

%defattr is deprecated.

Does the license have to be MIT? Couldn't it be something public-domainy like CC-0?

Comment 2 Miroslav Suchý 2015-06-16 08:09:03 UTC
Why is it called "fedora-workstation-repositories"? This sounds like there is no use for cloud or server, which is not true.
Can we rather call it fedora-third-party-repositories?

Which repositories do you want to include there? Just phracek/PyCharm? Or selected subset of Copr repos (i.e. equivalent of playground)? Or all Copr repos?

Comment 3 Paul W. Frields 2015-07-21 19:46:30 UTC
The repositories are meant to have use in the context of a Fedora Workstation installation, and would not necessarily be applicable (or might not work in Cloud case) in other editions.  Those editions have the opportunity to add other metadata-enabled repositories that make sense for their use cases.

Thanks for clarifying. Since thre is nothing complicated there, I guess I can say:
