Judging from the quantity of happy users of Fedora+KDE we have, I don't
think we have any actual problems making our users happy despite our
somewhat limited (but growing over time) manpower. ("We" was "Fedora KDE
SIG" in that sentence.) This "we (Fedora) have to protect our users from
that understaffed, poorly supported desktop" argument just makes no sense
when you look at the facts. KDE is NOT poorly supported in Fedora. Our
manpower is limited (and yes, the way we present KDE is one of the reasons
for that!), but not insufficient.
