We have a deadline for the PRD coming up in about a week. I'd
actually have something to present to FESCo. Can we please either
agree to trust each other or barring that call for a vote on one of
the current draft PRDs? Members of the Workstation WG really need to
speak up here.
Is possible to have some compromise/midway between the two drafts?
As I see it they mostly just differ in the contexts they set:
Christian's having more emphasis on different types of developers
and Matthew's being closer perhaps to the traditional Fedora user audience.
I feel like a lot of the arguments have been "Desktop vs Workstation",
and I agree that the core subset of Workstation (ie essentially minus
all the developers tools and libraries/devel stacks) should also be good
too for general non-developer users.
There is a lot of text about making Fedora Workstation
an enticing platform for developers which I am all for
but I do feel that the PRD should also cover some basic criteria
for a successful core desktop to support that: things like
being lightweight and generally getting out of the users way, and
supporting an informative configurable panel out of the box, etc.
It doesn't have to be a detailed explicit feature list
but some kind of vision on the type/flavor of core desktop
we are aspiring to for Workstations would be appealing
to include IMHO.
Since time is running out, should we have a WG meeting
this week to seek agreement and flesh out any final changes?
I don't feel we are so far from an acceptable final document.
