If you refer to my earlier comment, again, it wasn't directed
at anyone. All I wanted to say is that a blanket statement like
"in Fedora tradition is not an argument" does not hold water.

It's like saying "in Fedora we don't care to learn from the past".
That wouldn't be smart :)

I was frustrated, and I was too direct and obscure. 
If it was taken personal I apologize.
