    Ask and you shall receive...

    Per your request Chad I've created the fedora-flame list. Its an off
    topic list so there's literally nothing that is out of bounds for the
    list where posting and topics are concerned. You can post about Fedora
    Core of anything at all really.

    you can find list information and subscription information at this address:
