Modularity has been an interesting idea on paper, but not worth the

It is always good to push the boundaries and search for better ideas
and improvements, and that is part of what makes Fedora great. We are
doing this in the context of the RHEL 9 release as well, so our near
term timeline and requirements mean we are working on evolving
modularity, not a revolution or a replacement. We are excited by ELN,
Or: you could discard modularity for RHEL 9. My experience with recent
Fedora releases and RHEL 8 has been that it's been destabilizing to
active and to build environments, with no detectable benefit.
Can you, or can anyone else, cite a single issue it has helped with?
Especially one that was not better resolved with other existing
deployment tools, such as /etc/alternatives or version pinning?
