So after going over the emails on this list and looking over the PRD
have tried to clarify the Mission statement. The new text should
hopefully both make it even clearer that general users are welcome to use
Fedora and at the same point by using the term 'Fedora Workstation Working
Group' instead of 'We' I made it more clear that the goal of the PRD is to
govern the work of the working group, not the use of the individual users
of the product.
Currently, the doucment says:
We want to create a stable, integrated, polished and user friendly system
that can appeal to a wide general audience.
Programming Environment: web languages and tools, open source databases,
IDE, Compilers, debug tools, performance monitoring
That doesn't read as a 'general' audience - maybe unfortunate word choice
with the re-use of 'general' here? Suggest:
web languages .. performance monitoring
Desktop apps should be sufficient ...
Developer case 1: Student
Developer case 2: ...
Overall, the mission statement does read better. I would still be concerned
that when the document itself states:
"... special focus on providing a platform for development ..."
"... welcome feedback and requests as long as it doesn't negatively impact
our developer target and we have [free resources]"
that it can be read as promoting a second class set of users.
