Remember that many of the opinionated people have a lot of energy which means that you can convince them to be constructive critics or even voracious participants. Pay more attention to any valid criticism that you might getting and try to address that directly. So the action plan is pretty neat

This is incredibly important for all of us to keep in mind.

Marketing Fedora is more than just telling everyone "Fedora is wicked
cool, use it." It's also about creating Wild Raving Lunatic Fedora Supporters -- and one of the surest ways to do that is to start with a Wild Raving Lunatic. :)

The passion of open source advocates is sometimes a pain in the ass, but
it can be turned to *tremendous* advantage. And as Rahul notes, one of
the best ways to do it is to find the valid criticisms, acknowledge them, and fix them.


While we are at it, let me bring in some good news. Andrew Hudson alias Andy who is the co-author of Fedora 4 Unleashed and the reviewer of Fedora Core 4 in Linux format magazine and has somehow read my request to have a copy of the review in the response to a Fedora forum posting that was pointed out earlier has contacted me off list and asked whether I would want a copy. Of course, I promptly said yes and got a PDF soon enough. (I am not allowed to redistribute in a public website without permission. Interested community marketing members can get a copy on request offline) and also expressed his interest to participate in the Fedora Docs project after clarifying some details from Sams publishing. I am reading through the interesting review now and will respond back to him and this list in detail later.
