My initial reaction was similar to Neal's. What about inserting
and open source" just after the "innovative"? Or maybe can find
something more meaningful in place of the "innovative"?
I agree with including free software (or FOSS ) in the mission. The current mission is
very clear about our will to collaborate with upstream projects (that's the main
reason I started contributing to Fedora). It makes me happy to see Fedora people
contributing to several projects whenever needed. The new text feels like the project will
start looking to new horizons and that the former mission may be forgotten at some point.
