Ummm... How would you know whether or not building from source would
have a noticeable benefit for me? That seems so...nevermind.

I've noticed that sort of thing in a few areas with SUSE. They seem to
think they know what you want, better than you do.

Please state examples.

For the record, I have also on occasion built from source, as the
binaries weren't available. One of the nice things about Linux has been
the way it allows people who know what they're doing to do it. Now it
seems some nanny is taking over, to make sure we don't fall down and
scrape our knees.

You can still rebuild everything, no one is stopping you.

We usually just do it with osc build, rpmbuild or whaetver methods.

Ciao, Marcus
