Aside from calling people names (yes, don't do it!), this is obviously a case of SPEC generated by a script. I guess we just pull to Fedora whole TeXLive. So, a) whatever you think about the quality of packages included, the morons are not Fedora maintainers, but you have to target your ire upstream, OR b) you should sit down and propose and make TeXLive maintainers/users some mechanism how to choose and select only relevant package. To know which packages are relevant is however quite tricky. I would tend to agree with you that the ones you mentioned are probably obsolete, but it is really hard to decide. My wife relies desperately on linguex (and its dependend packages, e.g. cgloss4e)? Would you know whether it is relevant or not?

It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their consciences. -- C.
