Yeah; the idea behind the guideline is that you want documentation to be
generally valid, for example - if you have resources that have to say "if
you're on X, do A, if you're on Y, do B..." it gets very unwieldy very
and makes it much harder for users as well. We obviously are going to have
some of this with the assorted desktop spins, but imagine that level of
differences spread to yum vs apt (as a theoretical bad example.)
Agreed -- I think changes should be in proportion to the amount of separate
branding the spin has. If I'm running something which configures the system
in a very different way, I should *know*.
