That's not even something we're talking about.

Fedora's "freedom position" has been pretty consistent for a while now. 
There will always be people who don't like it, and so we'll have one of 
these threads from time to time, but that doesn't mean we're making any 
major new decisions.

Certainly, Dave, no change like that would ever happen without you being 
part of the conversation.
