Sloppy reading, sorry, this happens in %post and not in %pre. My bad.
But this doesn't really change anything, my view is the same: to download the
payload in a scriptlet is not "sane" in the GL sense. And, if I read your
comments correct (?) you tend to agree, while arguing that if the GL gives a
bad user experience they should be changed (or ignored).
While a perfectly consistent and perhaps relevant position (frankly, I don't
know) I do have respect for the fedora-related processes. From that perspective
I guess this review is then dead, since reviewing is about the GL.
Another part of this would be to start a discussion about a Fedora GL change to
open up for this kind of packages (not likely?) or a rpmfusion exception
(somewhat more likely?). Perhaps if you just sent an email to the rpmfusion
list explaining the general problem, possible alternatives and your position?
I have also been in environments handling bad guidelines, coding rules etc.
(both as user and maintaining rules). Still, I think that the rules here,
formed in consensus in an amazingly knowledgeable community is nothing of the
kind I've seen in closed, hierarchical companies. As long as one can listen (no
to me, still a newbie) here is so much to learn.
