It was in Fedora -- can't remember where, but it was used to build kmods
in Fedora, so it must have been somewhere (in the rpm macros package?).
In Fedora one was forced to use a copy of it in the srpm/cvs branch, there was
no package containing it.
But when Fedora kicked separately packages kernel modules I started
develop it further in livna -- it made no sense to develop a Livna
only-solution in Fedora and just complicates things.
Imho developing it in Fedora cvs was not good. Can you maybe use fedorahosted
to develop it? Or host it on somehow else, which makes sure where to get it,
how to report bugs and send patches?
Nevertheless I cannot see how adding it as a package to Fedora instead of
rpmfusion would make it more complicate. For users of kmodtool, it would be a
lot easier. Also I understand the founding priciples in a way, that
rpmfusion does not contain packages, that could be in Fedora instead. And the
dkms infrastructure is also in Fedora.
