I am aware of that, but as both need to be tested anyway that should
not be really a blocker.
Instead of just discussion this every 2nd release[1] (same as the boot
time thread [2] that shows up at the beginning of each rawhide cycle),
we should decide whether we[3] want this, and then go on implementing
this.


1: it just feels like this so don't come up with "but there was no
such thread for fedora n"
2: and ends up into a do we need a MTA started by default flamewar
(but that's a different topic)
3: now who is "we" ... FESCO, rel-eng ? Who is app to make this decision ?
