There is alot of alignment in how I see us going forward as are in your 
proposal however there is a fundamental difference in what you are 
proposing and what I'm proposing we should do.

What I see us going forward with is the core/baseOS "FedoraOS" that the 
community delivers at large while the sub community they themselves set 
the direction, their target audience and deliver "their" product on top 
of the stable foundation we provide them with, the "FedoraOS".

You want to limit the project to three "official default products" that 
the community delivers at large, which to me, does not solve existing 
problem in our community, narrows down the "scope" of the project as 
well as hinders innovation and participation while I want to liberate 
the community from the shackles of the "default" thus finally put the 
default skeletons to their grave, reduce the "bureaucracy" and allow for 
more innovation. more products, and faster adoption for us as an 
community in whole to the constantly changing open source environment 
and have us contribute shaping that landscape.

Due to the fundamental difference in our proposal I'm not seeing where 
we could meet half way through, on a common grounds in them ( i'm all 
ears if you have a starting point ).

And since we are setting the direction for the project for the next 5 - 
10 years we as a community need to give this some serious thought if 
something like what you proposed is the way forward ( tying us down to 3 
products ) or if we should move into the direction of what I propose in 
that time.
