I am seeing a lot of questions recently where people are seeking assistance with installing software - usually compiling from source, or installing an RPM.
In my opinion these questions should be closed as too localised, or possibly moved to Unix & Linux. However, perhaps we should have a canonical question on this that will help new sysadmins develop their skills.
Something that advises professionals why they should use a package management tool in most cases, dealing with different repos, and examples of when using an RPM or compiling from source is the best option.
Any guidance on how such a question should be worded and how I can encourage people to provide canonical answer rather than voting to close it?
