Re: PROPOSAL: Core size reduction "bug day"

Know that there may also be benefits to moving KDE to Extras.
* Red Hat does not emphasize enigneering work on KDE. Most of the RH desktop team works mainly on GNOME.

* Community members care about KDE.
* Thus community members would do a better job of providing a more polished KDE experience in Fedora.

However even entertaining this idea, we have several large challenges:
* Currently we have no way of pulling in Extras into the installer. This would probably be an absolute requirement before this could happen.
* The Extras KDE maintainer(s) would need to be at both a very high technical and trust level to make sure it does not stray on the whims of 50 less experienced people who will undoubtedly submit less than ideal changes.
* Changes to KDE must be done without compromising the Fedora/RH way of doing things. This would mean tight communication/collaboration with the RH desktop team.


As usual, you bring sensibility to an issue where many folks have very little..B. (-:

Excellent points you make, and I find it hard to disagree with any of them. If moving KDE out of CORE truly can make it better, then I'm all for it. I'd like to help in any way I can.
