Re: F11: xorg decision to disable Ctrl-Alt-Backspace

To change this behavior is just insanity.

Please stop throwing around the "sys admins will freak out" card, I'm
a sys admin and we do things correctly through provisioning using
kickstarts. It will be maybe a 3 line edit to a script. It was an
upstream choice, Fedora has historically remained compliant with
upstream so I imagine if you would like a change to be made on this
topic it would be most effective to discuss it with upstream.

I intend to discuss it with upstream.  But this is a huge change to default behavior for X control that almost NO ONE knows about.  The default methods of controlling the X server have been around for decades and many users and sys admins automatically know what the default behavior is that can be counted on in almost all situations and therefore this constitutes a big change.  And big changes like this need to be advertised extensively instead of just quietly slipped in.  I was hoping that Fedora might take the lead on stopping this bad change.  And again, yes, I'll take this to upstream as well.

Gerry
