I see a serious lack of respect for the release process and all the
packagers that followed it if a single user causing enough noise on the
lists can force the fork of a major distro component against the wishes
of its maintainer on the eve of a release for a single app without the
upstream of said app being involved and expressing any form of
commitment to help clear the mess.

May as well trumpet "our release process is a joke" and "people who
follow it are morons afraid of a little flaming".

Think we're not creating a precedent now? Read the thread. Every past
compat package is used as an argument to ignore test releases and the
fact python 2.5 hit rawhide 10 months ago.

Do we want to be flamed every time there is a roadmap clash because
people feel it's easier to change ours than fix the problem upstream
(upstream, upstream, usptream, remember ?)


You're getting me wrong, I'm not advocating a last minute rush to fix this. I mearly want to know why FESco decided as it did. Sofar no-one has been able to explain that properly to me. Also I almost always read the FESco meeting minutes, and I cannot remember seeing this there. But thats probably my fault, can someone point me to the minutes of the meeting where this was decided?

Regards,

Hans
