Why are we referencing JetBrains' proprietary Rider in our developer
documentation? It was already a bit of a stretch with Visual Studio
Just a note: It's not a documentation and it's not meant to be in any way.
Aimed on Developers, solely, and addressing their needs.
Code, given that literally no one is working on bringing that into
Fedora (but at least it is open source), but this is straight-up
advocating for nonfree software, which entirely _not the point_ of
Fedora Developer site.
Neal, the not-being-in-Fedora is actually acceptable on Developer Portal. The portal aims

Even though It's not forbidden AFAIK.
Thank you for your feedback!
Radko, can you please change the order of paragraphs to reflect Fedoras' stand-point,

Websites' deploment is postponed until this is resolved. Alternatively, I can delete
the paragraph from resulting web page.
