This is another step trying to make Fedora end-user friendly while the only
effect is making it hostile to developers. As Fedora will never be used by
end-users as it conflicts with Fedora's foundation Freedom. With each such
step it takes more and more effort to make a new Fedora installation usable by
a developer (setenforce 0, dnf remove bash-completion, remove rhgb quiet etc.).
I must be a very weird (fedora) developer. I have never done any of
those three things :)
FWIW, I embrace the "EDITOR=nano by default" change so hard that I
need to be careful not to squeeze too hard.
Setting nano as default editor (or installing it on Server Edition) is
the first thing I do on every fresh fedora install. Still, every time
vi(m) opens for some reason, I feel like being thrown into cold water
(or into an exam situation, unprepared) - I still don't know any vi
commands other than :q, :q!, and :wq after more than a decade of using
as my primary OS.
Once a FESCo ticket exists for this Change, it'll have my +1 vote.
