Well, I thought it was clear, since I did include the words "Right
now", but yes: I do think that other products should be both permitted
and planned. One thing I've been discussing as an option with some of
the members of the KDE SIG is to promote Fedora Scientific, based on
the present-day KDE and Scientific Spins, as a fourth Fedora Product.
I think this would be valuable as it would also act as a prototype for
what the new-product process will need to be going forward.
This still seems kind of bizarre to me. Scientific Workstation is a very
niche spin for a particular audience which happens to use the KDE
desktop because, I dunno, the person who built the spin had to pick
*some* desktop and they liked KDE more than GNOME or something. KDE is
our most significant desktop spin after GNOME.
If we're expanding the product set, Fedora KDE seems like a reasonable
Product candidate, but smooshing it together with Scientific Workstation
seems a bit bizarre.
