Please don't change the subject.
The fact of the matter is that nearly nobody is actually paid to work
on, or otherwise improve, Fedora. As opposed to, say, Windows (either
the OS itself or the greater "ecosystem" around it)
I didn't say otherwise. No one is entitled to free work. If you stand on
a mountain and shout how much better you are, as the Linux community
often does, then well... don't cry when people show up with pitch forks
when they realize they've been "sold" snake oil.
What i'm saying is: Distros like Fedora actively hurt the very people
who are directly or indirectly helping them. There are single-person run
projects, like mine, out there that can't possibly do all the work
needed to have a dozen packages for each distro. It's just not possible
or, in the case of Java based projects, not even needed to begin with.
That is to say nothing of those distros doing things like Fedora now
does like running X as user which break otherwise perfectly running
applications. I can't check in every 6 months to make sure y'all didn't
break something. I don't have the time nor the download cap(1TB a month,
GO USA!) for it.
If you want to get volunteers to do something, deriding and insulting
them is highly counterproductive. Heck, that applies even if they
aren't volunteers. If you act like an ass, don't complain if you're
treated like one in response.
You're response, honestly, is just an echo of the general mentality many
distro developers have that I've seen. It's not even unique or different.
I'll follow up on the mostly-unrelated remainder of your reply after I'm
back from the doctor.
It was all in response to the insulation that packaging software for
each distro is the answer to everything you seemed to have been putting
