It's very disappointing that this isn't considered a feature, largely
(so it seems from the IRC log) because the target audience is
considered "very limited".

Although provers are used only by a few experts to check that software
is correct, the benefits of using formally checked software
(functions, data structures, libraries, etc.) accrue to all users of
that software.

I hope that David & others working on this don't get discouraged and
this work continues, perhaps as a Fedora SIG.

Rich.


+1, please don't get discouraged when FESCo rejects a feature proposal.
Rejecting something as a feature doesn't mean that the package isn't accepted
into fedora. It just means that it doesn't met the requirements described in
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/Policy/Definitions#Features.
