No. fedora-devel-list was originally meant to be developer discussion
only. End-user support does not belong here at all. Unfortunately,
this list has been increasingly failing us for a few reasons:
- "developer discussion" is a gray area
- policing is a manual process of constant vigilance. Effort today
leaves no lasting effects in a few days.
What if more list members helped in the policing, making it an actively
hostile place for end-users to post support questions? I dunno...
Making any list actively hostile to end-users is a quick way to lose
end-users. This is one of the reasons I no longer use openSuSE.
