This is not an Ambassadors matters, but you are right about caring for
users, regarding Skype many people use it but if Skype will not work
with the new version of KDE, there is GNOME and it is a matter for Skype
people, not Fedora, we do not package Skype. If Skype want to be ready
on the Linux and KDE world they will take care of that.

Fedora is for innovation as you mention, but seems like you are asking
Fedora to stop doing it because of Skype. I'm sure Fedora Users that
know what Fedora is about will understand.
