communication would have avoided some of the discussion in
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1149568 and likely avoided
having the bug altogether. regardless of your reasons for making a
change or how unimportant you consider it, others follow things that are
done and follow up on them when you do not. I for one would appreciate
knowing when the allowable fields change in os-release because the
first I ever hear is when people file bugs asking for them to be added
to Fedora. I then have to chase things down to catch up.
