I'd encourage people who would like to see Fedora go to a different

sense, I disagree with folks who draw lines saying "we shouldn't do
this" -- and I've expressed this opinion in all levels too. We should
encourage people to try different things and CHANGE the Fedora goals.
If the community follows, the Board will follow, because it's an organ
by and for the Community.

So in Infrastructure, should we be focusing on the search engine so new
inexperienced users can more easily find answers to questions through our
various docs via keywords and things we define?

Or should I be focusing on being first to support IPv6 and implementing
dnssec for our advanced users.

Sure, they might both get done eventually.  But the amount of need does
not equal our ability to do.  So I have to pick.  Except that I don't know
who I'm picking for.

Let me see if I can sum up the differences in this thread to a couple of options:

1. pick a target audience and follow down that path, as rigidly as we possibly can, excluding and removing things which distract us from the target.

2. Don't pick a target, cast out as large a number as possible of directions and see who we pick up. Then cast out more.

That's what I see as the differences.
