Seriously. People. What the hell happened to simplicity and building a

that is just masturbation and we in Fedora should be above that. I feel
that people wanting this are treating Fedora like it's a playground for
their Toy OS ideas. Playing classic cards like "RH vs. community" and
"this or that committee says so" to justify their "ideas". It's
seriously tiring. Is this what Fedora is becoming? Because if it is,
I'll find something else to spend my time on.


The Praeto principle is relevant here. The more software we have, the less time contributors have to spend time on fixing bugs in a random project (let's say the Firewire stack as a random example) if they wanted to because they have to worry about fixing bugs in the packages they maintain.
