Please quit the nonsense, Re: Do we need split media CDs for F12? DO NOT VOTE for Kevin Kofler!



Please read my clarification in the thread:
https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-devel-list/2009-June/msg01389.html
to see what I'm really up to.

It's quite funny that you're using this word… Jesse Keating wrote this:

and I kinda have to agree with him. Would you also post a "DO NOT VOTE for

How is "we will do split media even if the community decides they're not
needed" a way of "working with the community"?

Listen, I do think that split media should be kept IF the community agrees
that they're needed. But I DON'T think you can force the Anaconda
developers to support them just because you (as in "the Fedora Unity
project") want to use them. Heck, I'm even OK with Fedora Unity doing CD
sets if the consensus is that offering them under the Fedora umbrella is a
bad idea, but offering them elsewhere is fine. I don't have anything
against the Fedora Unity project. But we need to decide TOGETHER what is
worth shipping and supporting.

No, they'll just not be mandated to keep supporting split media if nothing
in Fedora needs them. But nobody will force them to drop the code.

No.
