Can't agree more. Application developers just have to provide distro
friendly sources (preferrably git or svn repo, but tarball hosted on
trusted server is also ok), packaging and integrating into distro has
to be done by distro developers. This way packages won't be out of
date and data in showroom will be really easier to maintain.
