All packages with updates and last added


Authors and Contributors

Fedora United was born as a Google+ community made by David Vásquez whose purpose is to unite all distributions based on Fedora; so he updated and made in free time several basic packages for rawhide purposes. Various people liked it and the three crazy people, Sérgio Basto, Pavlo Rudyi and David Vasquez created the UnitedRPMs Project.

What is the purpose of this project?

Well, to maintain a solution for people with unstable Fedora distributions, improve our technical skills, create a Copr-like build system for package with licensing problems. UnitedRPMs it's not a branch maintenance of other projects, it is only a way to give the user a fast solution without foolish bureaucracy where everyone can help.

Why doesn't UnitedRPMs contribute to RPMFusion?

Our models of development are very different. We believe in a flexible ecosystem where everyone can be helpful to the community without stupid bureaucracy and without being a lone rider. Some of our packages were reworked from RPMFusion and can be used by everyone; unofficially as extended rpmfusion rawhide. You can find a list of all contributors here, the specs and source code are also available on Github.
Except for Sérgio Basto, who is an RPMFusion contributor and likes to think this project is an extension of RPMFusion.
