For the record: The current incarnation of this page is already the
smooth version after I contacted John two weeks ago in private and
asked him to review the page and preferably remove it altogether.

I'm copying John, as he might want to say something about it. Instead
of asking wiki admins to edit his page away I'd prefer if he would
consider this himself. The least we really need is more dividing in
the fedora community camps, and I hope we can move forward with
cooperating parties instead of enforced policies.
