umm.... not true.

We dont have Packager set on any CentOS4/5 rpms anymore - anything that
comes through the buildsystem does not have that. We used to set that a
few years back, so we could track buildroots and logs etc, and work out
what machine was used for what and who was responsible for the package.

I dont mind plastering my name all over the rpms, but CentOS isnt my
project and we work within a community of people / developers / users /
abusers / moaners.

If people want to get the name of who wrote what, all edits are
attributed to sources, much like any other wiki is like wikipedia etc
