So, according to you, this discussion won't change much KDE Spin?
I am trying to move this conversation from being bikeshedding to
possibly accomplishing something. The devel list is meant for general
discussion topics which affect the distribution as a whole or for
people to try and find who to contact on a specific problem.
Conversations on editions or effects which are run by SIGs do not seem
to get 'fixed' regularly in here because the people who are working on
it may not be on this list or htey may only filter it for once in a
while reading. They are more likely to be cognizant of emails and
topics that are on the dedicated SIG email.
Besides, how do I join a SIG? Do you have a link by chance?
