Features have very real schedule impact, just consider this time around, RPM with a bunch of new features, and a new gcc coming at some point soon. Usually we want to rebuild for both of those. Without some high level coordination, how do we schedule so that we rebuild once for all of the right reasons instead of multiple times individually? How can releng/qa properly schedule timelines for testing and what should be tested based on the changes? How do we know when we should slip for specific features that are close but just haven't quite made it yet? The feature process allows greater visibility and coordination across the entire distribution, which is quite large. Fedora is a far cry from the RHL days when most everybody working on it was in the same room, and the few that weren't were easy to find on IRC. We're vastly different and larger and need these communication/coordination efforts to continue to be successful. -- Jesse Keating Fedora -- Freedom² is a feature!
