What > you call "eager" in many cases is "bug-fixing across distros". Ralf, please don't confuse these things. I'm perfectly fine and encourage bugfixing across releases. What I'm discouraging is version upgrades for new features or spurious builds for spec fixes and other unnecessary things that are done across the releases trees, not just on rawhide. These are the things that I don't like to see, and these are the things that lessen the value of a release. -- Jesse Keating Fedora -- All my bits are free, are yours?
