With no request for input, one guy decided to drop the Checkinstall

And? Where's would the problem have been? Whoever wants to maintain it
would have been free to grab the source rpm and maintain it in the
openSUSE buildservice.

The fact that it snuck thru anyway was due to the fact that he
failed to communicate: even to his own team.

Nice try, but you failed :) The reason that it snuck through was because
I never filed a real drop request, as a package maintainer can't simply
drop it himself.
