I know. That worked. Fedora could be so much better and ahead of our
competitors if Red Hat would help with the birth of some stuff a bit
more. That part of the reasons why I started this thread.


There aren't many people in the Fedora community I trust more than I trust Thorsten. He says we've got a lot of work to do in order to make Fedora more open. He's exactly right.

We've got a lot of work to do inside the fenceline, though. Honestly, a lot of that work requires the disentanglement of Fedora and RHEL -- we need the ability to innovate freely in Fedora without adversely impacting RHEL. We didn't really have that opportunity in the FC6 timeframe.

But now we do.

Our real goal: to figure out how to open Core to community developers. There. I said it. But it's going to take some *extremely* heavy lifting.

I know it's hard to hear "we're working on it," and you can only hear that so many times. But Max, Bill and I will be flying up to Boston and spending several days talking through internal issues around Fedora with the other engineers. The goal: a proposal for a community roadmap for FC7, which we will then present to community folks for additional guidance. I'd like to see something presented on this list by November 15th.
