It's a personal tic, but I like to avoid calling people "consumers."
What about, "The Fedora Project works closely with upstream projects to
fix bugs, add features, and generally improve the state of software it
depends on. This benefits not just Fedora users, but all users of the
software and the wider open source community."
Is there a better word than "user". The only other industry which has
"users" is the illegal drug market and well we all know how well they
are treated by their pushers. I thought that consumer gave them some
respect over being a slab of meat who I pushed whatever I wanted onto
them. It also defined the relationship of those who are just wanting a
product to work but aren't currently interested in or able to
contributing to the product and community.
