where do you draw the line?
if you have 100, 200, 300 server instances size matters and if you
the candle of worms "what *could* be useful" you end in fat default
installs to satisfy anybody
No, certainly not add everything somebody thinks *could* be useful; what
I’m saying is that the mandatory APIs *define* the product from the point
of view of application developers; so we definitely need to be careful
about what we want the product to be, and what APIs we can long-term
support at all; but if we have no always-available APIs, then, for
application developers, *we have no product*.
… OTOH now I have realized that perhaps we *do* want all the APIs to be in
Fedora Base/minimal, and the Server to only add the
servers/applications/appliance-like features. So I might have been
completely wrong about this.
