Well, to summarise my experiences trying to get just 2 redhat RPM packaging
additions (2 spec files) into the 'contrib' folder of myth:
1) all developers on and off list either thought it was an absolutely
marvelous idea, or were in-different to it.  Most of them being the former,
loved the idea.   Only Isaac, the project owner specifically dissented, and
said (unoquivacly, and repeatedly) "packaging stuff doesn't belong in the
upstream source", and he could not be swayed.      

When pushed for an alternative he said: (and I quote him again):

I suggest that you may like to put deb/packaging related stuff in here:
