Want to  weigh in on this soon.  Making sure I get a clean boot from F20, going to put
 my white hat back on and figure everything out (at least by being a crash test
 dummy/kernel thrasher/low security guinea pig).

 Might have questions too, if anyone is nice enough to be patient with someone
 who hasn't been totally comfy since F16.

A good first step would be to draw up a list of ARBT bugs that we feel
are critical for the Workstation user experience (this one [1]
immediately springs to mind.) We should also ensure that any critical
issues have been reported. It would be fantastic if someone could take
this on.

Second, we (or I...) need to do a design review to see where we are
and where we want to be with regards to the problem reporting user
experience. There is a lot of background material that we can draw on
here [2].

Once we've done these two steps, we'll be in a position to have a
constructive conversation with the ABRT team.

There is also a more general issue here: traditionally, the Fedora
release process has had a fairly limited definition of what
constitutes a blocker, and there isn't a huge amount of downstream bug
tracking in the run up to a release. If we want to raise the quality
of the overall workstation experience, we'll need to expand the range
of issues that are tracked for each release to include more general
user experience bugs. This might well require changes to the
workstation release process, as well as new release management roles.
