Actually, the correct analogy would be "burning platform" (and we all know
how well that ended).
Flatpacks are an unproven tech that can still crash and burn in the market.
Even if it eventually succeeds crash-landing it in Fedora while half the
security and management tools are lacking is a great way for the
distribution to get an awful reputation, while others will rip the fruits of
this work some years later.
It would be nice, for once, if the desktop team could integrate its latest
idea in the distribution, and remove deprecated parts once the replacements
are mature, instead of forcing on everyone half-assed software, with half
the bits missing, no alternatives, and years of bad blood while they insist
it is good enough and users are wrong to expect working workflows (yay for
echo chamber effects and devs agreeing with themselves they are right but
1. make flatpacked sofware behave like rpms in all the rpm-centric management
tools, and remove the rpm layer only when everyone *in* *the* *Fedora*
*universe* agrees it is not needed anymore and the replacements are better.
2. make a wayland, not a gnome 3.0
However we end up doing it, I think it'd be better if we could do it without
you, whatever it is you do for Fedora. We, and certainly I, don't want this
level of toxicity and utter malfeasance on a mailing-list that I'm supposed
to be subscribed to.
Please, do leave, so you don't have to endure our apparent incompetence.
