I am not sure if am a considered a 'party' here. This was a decision
of FESCO which I am not part of -- so if I agree or not doesn't matter.
To state this clearly: I did _not_ agree with this 'compromise'. I
think shipping two mixers like this by default is a bad decision, and
I am pretty sure that the big majority of the desktop group is with me
What I can agree on is that this 'discussion' needs to end. And that's
why I just don't care anymore. I didn't escalate this to FESCO in the
first plce, and I am not fighting this further.
I find it a bit weird that FESCO feels to have to intervene in this
case. Apparently FESCO thinks that making decision on bloody volume
controls is more appropriately done by FESCO than by the desktop
folks. And let me also state that I find it a bit dubious that if a
certain person is not happy with a decision a group of people make in
Fedora he runs to some commitee he himself happens to be member of and
then uses it to push it through regardless what the folks whose area
of expertise the issue belongs to think.
In summary: well done!
