I didn't just "take" his ticket - I talked to Red first, asking if there
was anything I could help out with. He suggested I take the ticket if I
wanted to work on it (since he hadn't started it yet) and that
he'd polish up whatever pieces I missed.

I dunno - I've worked with some dysfunctional teams in the past, and
Fedora doesn't strike me as one of them. But hey, if in a couple
releases I suddenly change my mind on the impression I have of Fedora
and it's users/contributors, I'll buy you a beer next time I'm in your
neck of the woods. :)
