Platform. Singular. We are providing a Platform, not a variety of them.
That is part of the mission's focus. We need to provide a common
platform across a variety of target environments so that end
developers and users have something to consistently rely on to develop
or tailor. If we provide multiple platforms it gives us no value,
causes resource issues and confusion, and doesn't help us with
marketing at all.
I'm not meaning to pick on you, and maybe you didn't even think about
that aspect. I'm simply using this as an opportunity to highlight
what we feel is a very key tenant of the new mission.
I understand, but I don't see it in how we have done things. Mainly
this is because we aren't clear on the definition of platform. To me a
platform is what you use to stick things together.. so ostree, old
releases are 2 different platforms. containers and flatpack are
different platforms, aarch64, arm, s390, ppc, i386 and x86_64 are all
different platforms. workstation, server, and whatever 3rd wheel we
are trying for this release are different platforms.
So I can see where you are coming from.. but you need to define that
somewhere to be clear so I can switch my definition of the last 20
years to this one :).
