I'm not testing rawhide... I'm testing F9. Sure, right now, that's the
same thing, of course, but it's still an important distinction, because
rawhide is going to be an official release soon, and it should be ready.
The differences is basically that "testing rawhide" implies making sure
packages work as intended, whereas "testing F9" implies making sure
packages are ready to be released. (Am I wrong?) Regardless, no tester
should "live with short comings": a testers job is to point out bugs and
feature short comings.
I agree. However the 'problem' you have with GDM is not a Fedora problem but a
GNOME 'problem'. This is a Fedora list not a GNOME list. And it is a known
issue. A solution for this 'problem' is under development. If you are really
serious maybe you could help write some code for them? If not I would suggest
that you write a bugzilla report on the GNOME bugzilla.
The comment on the "need" to use a GUI is completely
tester's job is to point out short comings in an aspect of the system,
regardless of that tester's ability to use CLI or GUI, or their
preference for either. In this particular case, it's even more
irrelevant, though, because as we've consistently pointed out, there is
currently NO way to configure gdm login to disable the user list or
faces, or to customize the user list, by GUI or CLI tool, AFAIK, and
nobody has posted anything here saying otherwise, since I started this
Once again. Probably the wrong list. And again GMONE bugzilla. I bet most of
