Around the idea and concept of modularity... what are the benefits to Fedora,
Fedora developers, and Fedora contributors? Through the various discussions
on modularity, nothing solid in this regard has been presented. If I am
Fedora contributor now, what can modularity do for me?
Most of the remainder of this thread talks about the problems with the
implementation as it exists today and problems with other known options.
Putting that aside for now, why should Fedora contributors care about
Put another way, what does the developer experience look like for modularity?
These are good questions, but I feel like there has been about 2+
years of discussion and debate about what Fedora could get out of
modularity. I'm not sure I have anything to offer that is directly
new or better. I do think that ELN presents a new opportunity for
those that have already found value in the Fedora community to use and
improve it there in the absence of widespread Fedora adoption.
Perhaps that would allow a place for the ideas to grow and could prove
to be illustrative.
At any rate, my goal isn't to evangelize or convert Fedora to suddenly
embrace modularity wholescale. I am simply offering clarity on the
plans for RHEL 9 with this technology.
