Are you not familiar with the concept of bugzilla votes? Try clicking on
the '(vote)' link sometime.

I'm not aware of a workflow or policy which takes into account
bugzilla votes in Fedora.  Individual maintainers may or may not
consider votes when prioritizing how they use bugzilla, but there's
certainly nothing that I am aware that suggests that highly voted on
bugs are subject to high level review or discussion as a part of
project management.  I fear that you are encouraging people to vote
with the expectation that the vote will matter in some way when it may
not.

Valid points.

However, I reject the implied notion that ALL feedback from Fedora users must be stifled -- which is the only conclusion one may draw from Fedora leaders asking people to (a) not comment on the list, and (b) not comment on the bug.

I'm curious what Fedora leaders think is the proper forum for __Fedora users__ to register complaints against this policy. Voting seems to be the most efficient, and least spam-y method of doing so, but I am open to suggestions!



We've gotten enough feedback. We don't need 300 more people giving the same arguments over and over or empty +1s or votes. Please relax and let the developer handle it, followed by fesco.
