Sorry for the double mail, but just after replying I went to see the
repos and as it appears, tor-devs are mainly developing tor for debian
based distros and they have some code to repackage to .rpm.
Do not forget that we are cattle on an animal farm which is managed and
handled mostly by machines. Machines do what they are/were told to. What
lies in between stdin and stdout and is not shown in stderr?
