You're making some pretty bold accusations that there is no focus
on testing and fixing graphics issues.  Perhaps you could classify
what you see as needing more testing and fixing instead of claiming
there is none.  I think that would be more accurate.

As for convincing you, I think I'll refrain.  I'd rather try and
find someone that actually wants to help then spend time trying
to talk to someone that has the nerve to propose canceling a
release to do testing and fixing and then needs convincing to
actually help with their own idea.

Fedora needs less arm-chair quarterbacking.  We have shit-tons
of that already.
