Note that I am not asking about armchair opinions about whether this
idea would theoretically fit the guidelines.

Neither am I asking for war stories of sysadmins whose life was ruined
by f20.

I am interested in concrete problems that have been experienced by the
people who have tried out Richards copr. If you are not in that group of
people, maybe you should actually try the copr before participating in
this discussion.
