Why not use the packages in official Fedora/EPEL? Do you intend to have
much less strict policy of publishing incompatible upgrades ?

I would much rather see the Fedora and EPEL packages being blessed as
official ATS packages (and would love some help maintaining/testing them).
I don't think there should be much problem having EPEL running at latest
release, but fedora might have a bit more strict policy against
incompatible upgrades within a fedora-release.

I fear that if ATS starts pushing out-of-distro packages as the
preferred version to run, my effort to maintain it in Fedora/EPEL will
be a waste -- and we might end up without ATS natively in Fedora/EPEL.
