Re: nominate for removal: ethereal



For the record, this is a topic that I'm tackling from a
clean-sheet-of-paper position.  I intend to complete a (non-binding)
draft for review by a small number of folks, then with larger and larger
circles, including fedora-devel-list, over the coming weeks.

Disclaimer: while passionately supporting the idea of Fedora for a long
time, I'm only just recently involved with it at the nuts-and-bolts
level.  I consider myself to be an intelligent newbie, not the grizzled,
all-knowing wizard that my age or experience with open source might
imply.  You should assume that until I prove myself, stuff I say might
as likely be overruled as adopted.  Still, I think I can help.
