17:32:06 <Kevin_Kofler> This one is my proposal. See the ticket for
the rationale.


17:34:03 <Kevin_Kofler> It stops misleading users about the contents
of the image.
17:34:30 <skvidal> Kevin_Kofler: misleading? cmon, 1. it doesn't
really matter and 2. do you think we're going to take a hit on false
advertising? :P

It is sad to read the full log and see that your top argument is  "it
doesn't really matter". I would expect more depth and reasoning from a
FESCo member.

It *does* matter; in fact, the current scheme is *disturbing* to some
of us. Even if we were a tiny minority (which I believe we are not),
as a FESCo member you shouldn't ignore us and make such jokes: "false
advertising? :P". Instead, working on to cure the current annoyance
will be appreciated. It doesn't really matter much which path you take
when you are working on it but just... don't ignore. I suggest
reminding yourself that you are a steering committee member and save
your comedy skills for somewhere else.

Today, you lost some points.

I suggest everyone cut the drama. We're talking about whether or not the live cd is labeled as 'gnome desktop' or leaving it as it currently is which says: 'fedora 11 desktop edition: featuring the gnome desktop'.

I don't see the need for the distinction.

Furthermore, I was being flippant b/c I thought the claim that Kevin was making was a bit over the top. Misleading? That implies intent and no one is intending to mislead anyone.

Now, I don't understand why it is - but there seems to be a contigent of people who work on the KDE packaging for fedora who believe that KDE is being slighted or biased against in some way.

We have a default install of Fedora. It installs a desktop that features gnome.

There is no bias there, it just in reality.

Maybe reality has an anti-kde bias, but it's not been put there by anyone on fesco, the board or anyone else. Being melodramatic about it is not going to change anything.
