Oh my. It's come to posting conspiracy theories? Warren, this is out of
line. You, and a few other people, are so extremely obsessed with
creating / building a community around Fedora that you fail to take into
account 

 a) what the world looks like (we do / want to do the work 
    upstream); and 

 b) what is actually out there in the community (not a whole lot
    of useful input today desktop-wise). 

It's fine to get more community involvement. It does DO NOT happen
overnight and sacrificing quality is not an option. It happens
gradually. Please wake up.

It is my job to maintain the artwork packages and, yes, I'm deeply
troubled by the attitude on that list. That list is a place where the
guy with the biggest stereo wins (e.g. democracy, not what we do).
That's not a way to get the best result so of course I'm concerned. It's
my god damn job to be concerned about that.

If you want to discuss further take your fucking conspiracy theories off
list and mail me directly.
