We can definitely talk about whether moving to a slower cadence for

really matter how reliably we can create minimal container images if
the workstation image doesn't compose or doesn't log in.
I'm not sure that that's fair. I mean, I judge Fedora on how much its
features are likely to cause problems 9-36 months down the road in an EL
release... or now, in the case of cross-distro integration and support.
I could care less about GNOME, but care very much about gcc, glibc, the
kernel, and packaging of libraries.
*Laptop users* certainly judge Fedora on how well it works on laptops,
and Workstation environment users judge Fedora on the Workstation spin.
Any other statement would pre-suppose the exact answers this and related
discussion would seem to be working towards.
