I agree with that. It is clear that a lot of features have been part of
that single feature proposal (new ui, new upgrade tool, no lvm by
default etc) and we just didn't have enough time to do it all within
this cycle. Either the feature should have been pushed back to another
release or two or more resources have should have been provided to the
Anaconda team for this ambitious goal or the release should have been
extended *deliberately* ahead of time. No LVM by default also seems to
have raised some questions around communication with the storage team.
I must note however that I am very much in favour of the new UI and any
criticism directed towards the process doesn't change that at all. The
end result of this is that Fedora is suffering through several
unexpected and unprecedented release delays.
