Unfortunately, no one commented on his message: > http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-devel-list/2003-October/msg00180.html I overlooked the post at the time because of the reading required. (Sorry, Jef! :-) I've rectified that now. The overall concept seems to be quite a good one and one that should be applied to Fedora. The important thing to learn from the gnome folks, i think, is to be organised about getting responsibility taken for bugs that have been entered, or to put it another way, to take bugs about our distribution personally. :-) One possibility that they don't seem to have mentioned is to have the bug squad members be the default bug owners for different components. That way the bugs could be checked and passed on before they reach the stage of bogging the developers down. I for one would be ready to be the default recipient for selected components that are close to my heart, like jpilot, or shorewall when it gets in ;-). I see that one of the advantages of Fedora will be that some of us can act as go-betweens for the developers and the distribution, working to facilitate the best possible distribution support for the projects. -- Paul http://paulgear.webhop.net A: Because we read from top to bottom, left to right.
