So it was a poor choice for the packager that was trying to include
more up to date pieces for a long in the tooth distribution

No it doesn't but the point of the distro update was to get people
newer versions than R5A16 included. And it was driven by the need to
get ivtv 4.0 into it.

whomever complained about KnoppMyth here should have looked to the
forum that supports it and that is monitored by the distro packager
before complaining in the general list.
