Re: The future of Linux - architecture and package inter-dependencies

I think that this issue is not specific of fedora. The issue comes from
upstream where incompatible api or abi are used. And it widely depends on

No it is not, but this does not mean that Fedora could not or should not
address it.
Trying to shoehorn a ABI or API policy within Fedora would take a large amount of work without upstream involved in the decisions.

Since this distribution is touching the cutting-edge Linux
solutions, it could steer the community to focus more on architectural
design which could bring more benefits than binning backwards
compatibility to support the latest driver hack (just an example).
Concentrate and help fix problems on the individual projects instead of drawing out grandiose plans.
