I honestly don't know why you continue to use the word "fear" because
fear has nothing to do with this, I don't fear the Boards decision
because they don't dictate how I spend my free time or how I
contribute to Fedora. All I have ever done through out this entire
obfuscated campaign in search of a defined "target audience" is ask
questions for clarification. I'm not here to yell and freak out about
what the Board is doing, I still don't know enough to really start
doing that or decide that I like what's going on and go along with it.
I am not here to undermine the Board, just ask questions about things
that concern me so that I can attempt to understand where the Board is
coming from and where they are trying to go.
