Why not Fedora?
As far as I understand it, this package is too specific (rpi only) to be
eligible for inclusion into the Fedora repos. I can of course research this
more thoroughly if needed.

Libraries, utilities and demos for the Raspberry Pi BCM283x SOC GPUs

Essentially, this library will be a needed dependency for any package in the
rpi namespace that accesses the PI's GPU. e.g. omxplayer

Credit goes to Vaughan Agrez with the FedBerry project for doing the majority
of the work with this specfile. I have modified it to better fit RPMFusion
packing standards and have removed requirements specific to FedBerry.

This package represents a snapshot from an upstream project that does not have
any releases. Hence, the unusual package name.

This package places the following symlink for compatibility:
/opt/vc -> %{_libdir}/vc

I can see why this has been created, but I'm still on the fence on this one. I
have not tested whether this is truly needed and can look into this further, if
someone thinks we should leave /opt alone.

This will be the first of multiple package requests for the rpi namespace, and
I'm looking forward to receiving feedback for this package request.
