Harm? This sounds dramatized. Fedora is in the press with zarafa as a feature 
- and we disussed pro and contra already a lot. 

It is easy to oppose and disagree on new contributions - i know that it is 
part of your job at Red Hat to be a "pain" to non-FOSS Vendors ;) - but Fedora 
is about enable and encourage people to contribute and i want to see that 
Press, Users,  - the world - get the right message - i already explained in 
detail why it is good that a community driven feature should advertised [1]

Clarification and truth have nothing to do with harming - it is about enlighten 
them and evangelize them to spread it right. We talk about FOSS Software here 
and it seems Paul clarified things already to the author. 

cu Joerg
