Right. So either you haven't read my email, or you haven't checked the spec
file for mc in factory. It has '--disable-vfs-fish' configure flag
specifically set.

Yet when you search through the OBS, there are 11 branches (or rather
rebuilds) of mc, 7 of them have fish enabled as the main change over the
factory version.

Looking at the mc changelog in the devel project it says fish was
disabled due to a data loss bug:

https://build.opensuse.org/package/view_file/openSUSE:Factory/mc/mc.changes?expand=1

https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=856501
http://www.midnight-commander.org/ticket/3128

In that case what are you asking for?

A new repo called "I know there's a data corruption bug, but I want
the feature anyway". (I'm sure there is a better name but you get the
idea.)

If so, there is clearly at least some demand. I'd say make the
proposal and see if it flies. Personally I avoid software with known
data corruption bugs if at all possible.
