In any company with >1 employee, the liklihood of one person not
knowing what another person is doing is high.  Intentionally tying
actions of one person to the work of a (quite likely) functionally
unrelated person is frowned upon.  Legally requiring that the sales
web site, paper (translated) docs, etc. change whenever a software
developer fixes a bug is a sure way to ensure Fedora isn't as widely
used as we would like.

Thanks,
