Finally, someone who understood my question.
So the answer might be that the inability to keep up with dependencies would keep it from the distro's main repository?
This is sort of what I was guessing, but wanted to make sure.

  I've added the DanSmith repository enough times now that I can do it without looking for the exact syntax.
  But I keep wondering why Chirp is not in all Linux stable repositories.
  I mean that if I want something like speech-dispatcher, I don't need to add a repository to get it.
  As popular as Chirp is, can't it just be in all Linux repositories?
  Thanks for any info, I have been web searching for an explanation as to why this is in general, but I have only gotten a history of repositories without really explaining an answer to my question.
It was in Fedora for a long time but had to be removed after Python 2 went EOL.
