Sounds like this is going to need to be in the Release Notes.
I disagree. If you have to add it the release notes then the interface is
wrong. It needs *FIXING*.

The two are not mutually exclusive.  AIUI this is a major upstream
decision, and given the stated project goals of riding closely thereto,
I wonder if such a fix will be forthcoming.



One of the things about FC6 that bothers me is the exclusion of an adequate configuration file to make X work correctly. Since it is obvious that the server does not do the right thing in a reliable enough manner, passing a command to the x configuration program for either a minimal or conventional X configuration file should be included, upstream or not. The default should be for the conventional and more reliable configuration.

The main goal of Fedora should be to make the most reliable distribution that follows upstream as closely as practical instead of following upstream to the letter when their goals are ahead of their accomplishments.
