On a more fundamental note: Fedora isn't just upstream-slapped-with-a-specfile. As a distribution the resposibility is more complex: - - Distribution-specific problems that come from the selection of versions and dependencies. - - Distribution-specific problems coming from "own" projects like installer, update management etc. Combined with the different set of expectations from users versus maintainers versus developers. There will always be a need to track fedora-specific issues (note that I say issues, not bugs!). And once you accept the need for that, the rest follows. Your proposal effectively ignores the distribution speficic part. I (and quite some others, I guess) have a different view. From distribution to upstream to distribution. You cannot ignore the distribution part. You cannot ignore the difference between issues and bugs. You cannot wipe all that away without causing severe problems. Sending users to upstream doesn't work. It will upset upstream and force users to jump through even more hoops. Maintaininhg a working relationship with upstream is a very responsible task that should not be decentralized. That's my take to sum it all up. Don't go there :-) Jan - -- Jan H Wildeboer | EMEA Open Source Affairs | Office: +49 (0)89 205071-207 Red Hat GmbH | Mobile: +49 (0)174 33 23 249 Technopark II, Haus C | Fax: +49 (0)89 205071-111 Werner-von-Siemens-Ring 11 -15 | 85630 Grasbrunn | _____________________________________________________________________ Reg.
