True, but my point is we should have more respect for the personal
lives of everyone giving time here, and in all open source projects.
In fact, were it up to me, the wording of the above snippet would be
changed. But it's not, so it won't. (don't bother to give me the
its-a-wiki-change-it crap)

I also find it ironic that this thread immediately invokes defensive,
borderline demanding, responses from two @redhat.com addresses.

The greatest efficiency is for shit to work the first time. When it
doesn't, we're here to help, but don't expect it to be more than what
each person is capable of contributing.
