If listening means having others do the work of scratching other
people's itches, that's not likely to happen.  OTOH, I have found that
it's very easy to get involved and start fixing things that I find
could use improvement within Fedora, be it packaging, infrastructure,
and many other areas.  The people who do the work are more than happy
to have new help.

That's fine.  You'll still be benefiting greatly from the work of the
folks in the Fedora community.

I personally have found that in open source projects, complaints are
best received in unified diff format. ;)

Seriously, the best way to improve things is to be involved.  You
could shout from the sidelines all you want, but it's never as likely
to get you results as getting on the field and helping.
