Re: Results of the voting for the Fedora 17 release name



Gentle People:

"Last night I received a message via Twitter <http://twitter.com/#%21/beefymiracle> from a hot dog."

See the difficulty we are in!!! This is what happens when you
take political advice from a Hot Dog!

Hey, I know that most will consider this to be a dumb idea, but,,,
what about just naming it "Fedora Release 17", No, No No,
that will never work as it is way to adult!

Not to mention, that if this is indeed an "inside joke" it just goes
further to advance the opinion of some that Fedora is "run" by a small
group of "insiders" and everyone else (the user base) are "outsiders".
These people are "insiders" only to the extend that they have been
involved for a long time and care enough to know to these sort of
trivia. Other than that the information is transparently available in
many public places. This is a open source project after all.

In addition to that, I don't prefer to talk about a "user base" since
there is no bright line diving contributors and users. Anyone who
bothers enough to say report a bug should be considered a contributor.
